​Changing your child's name

If you're re-registering your child's surname after getting married you can ask to add or remove any forename at the same time. You can also change your child's name up to a year after they're born.

To change your child's name both parents need to visit the registrar of the parish your child was born and take:

  • your child's original birth certificate
  • your own ID
  • your marriage certificate (if applicable)
  • a fee of £85 (this includes £30 for a replacement birth certificate)

You'll be asked to fill out a form so that the parish registrar can re-register the birth and issue a new certificate.

Any fees paid to the Superintendent Registrar are non-refundable.
