Book an appointment to register a still birth

To register your baby's still birth, you need to book an appointment with a registrar from the area your baby was born in.

If your baby was born in Kent or Bexley, you can make an appointment by calling us on 03000 41 51 51 for Kent and 03000 41 52 52 for Bexley.

This service doesn’t include Medway, the London Borough of Bromley or Greenwich.

I want to register a still birth but I don't live in Kent or Bexley

If your baby was born in Kent or Bexley but you can’t attend an office here, you can give the details to any birth registrar in England and Wales. The details are sent to our Kent Libraries, Registrations and Archives Service who will register the birth. This is called registration by declaration.

If a still birth is registered by declaration the birth certificate and form for the funeral director will be sent to you by post, normally within 1 week.
