Register a birth


From Monday 18 May the registration of births will resume with a limited number of appointments at the Registration Offices. To help reduce the number of people coming in to the building and the amount of time spent in the office, we would ask that you download the Birth Registration Form.

When coming in to register the birth, please be aware of the following:

  • If married, only one parent should attend, if unmarried and wish to include the baby’s father’s name, then both parents need to attend. However, parents will be asked to come into the building one at a time

  • Please bring some form of ID with you

  • If possible baby, and other children should not be brought to the office

  • Payment will be taken over the phone by credit/debit card before attending the appointment

  • If you arrive before your appointment time please wait outside or in your car, as you will only be allowed access into the building at your appointment time

  • If you have a high fever or persistent cough DO NOT attend the appointment but please contact us and another one will be re-allocated to you at a future date.

The form can be completed online, saved and emailed to

If you are unable to fill the form in online you can print it out, complete by hand and return it to the office, either by scanning and email to or posting it to the registration office in either Cookstown, Dungannon or Magherafelt. 

If you do not have access to a printer please contact us and we can post a form to you. When we receive your completed form you will be contacted by phone and given an appointment.

If you have any queries, please contact Registration:
