Order a birth, marriage or death certificate

You can request a copy of a birth, marriage, civil partnership or death certificate if the ceremony or event happened in North East Lincolnshire. Our register office doesn’t hold records for North Lincolnshire Council East Riding of Yorkshire  or Hull City Council .


Certificates cost £11 for a standard service and £35 for a next working day service (if application is received before 3pm).

The quickest and easiest way to order a replacement certificate is online. However payment can be made in person or over the phone by credit or debit card. These options do incur an admin charge.

Replacement certificates can be collected or sent to you by post.
