Since birth registrations commenced again on the 29th June our team of hard working Registrars have registered nearly 500 births. If you have had a baby between February and now and have not yet registered the birth please contact the Registrars in Dumbarton on 01389 738350 (Monday to Friday 9am-4pm) to arrange an appointment.
A baby born in Scotland can be registered in any Registrars office in Scotland. Births cannot be registered in Scotland unless the baby was born in Scotland.
A birth must be registered within 21 days of the baby being born.
You must bring with you the birth card provided by the hospital where baby was born. If you do not have the birth card, you may have to make another appointment.
Same sex parent's details can only be inserted in the register if the provisions of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 apply.
For more information see the Human Fertilisation Embryology Authority website.
Most registration services are by appointment only, for further information please contact us.
