Passports and employment
If you require a birth certificate for the purposes of a passport application or employment we advise that you obtain a standard certificate. If you were born after 1982 you will have to provide a standard certificate for these purposes.
Payment can be made by credit or debit card, incurring an additional 50p transaction charge, or by postal order, made payable to "North East Lincolnshire Council".
For those who attend in person you can use cash.
If you do not have a debit or credit card, and do not live locally to enable a visit to the office, you can apply through the post. You will need to write a letter stating the date of the event, the location of the event and the names of the party(ies). PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHEQUES AS A FORM OF PAYMENT. You will therefore need to send a postal order made payable to "North East Lincolnshire Council" for the relevant fee. All certificates are returned by second class post, unless the application is accompanied by a stamped, self addressed envelope.
We cannot supply certificates for births, deaths and marriages which did not take place in the North East Lincolnshire Registration District.
If you have been subject to formal adoption proceedings you will have to apply for your adoption certificate from General Register Office. Your original birth certificate is no longer a legal document.
