Southampton Registration Services can supply certified copy certificates for a birth, death, marriage or civil partnership that took place in Southampton City since 1 July 1837.

If the event took place in a neighbouring area such as Hythe, New Forest, Totton or Eastleigh, you will need to apply to Hampshire Registration Service. For events that took place elsewhere, you will need to apply directly to that area.

All certificates, including adoption certificates can also be obtained from the General Register Office in Southport.
