It is possible to change your child's first name(s) on the original birth registration within 12 months of the date the birth was registered. For further information and advice, please contact us 01225 477234.
If you decide to change your child’s first name(s) after 12 months of the date of registration of the birth you will need to do this by deed poll instead. See name change by deed.
If you have noticed a spelling mistake or error on the original birth registration you will need to contact the Register Office to organise a correction. See correcting a birth record.
