Changing your child's name

​Changing your child's name

Parents who were unmarried when their child is born (and are still unmarried) can re-register their child's surname if the child was born before 31 October 2008, and is still under 18 years old. 

Children born in St Helier

If the child was born in St Helier, both parents should go to the St Helier Register Office, now at 12 Seale Street (alongside the Town Hall) taking the following:

  • the child's original birth certificate
  • their own ID
  • a fee of £85 (this includes £20 for a replacement birth certificate

Parents who are re-registering their child's surname can ask to add or remove any forename for the child at the same time. 

The parents will be asked to fill out a form so that the St Helier registrar can re-register the birth and issue a new certificate. 

Children born in a parish other than St Helier

If your child was born in a parish other than St Helier, both parents needs to visit the registrar of that parish and take the following items:

  • the child's original birth certificate
  • their own ID
  • the appropriate fee

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

Cost

The total cost for this is £85, which includes £20 for the replacement birth certificate.

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