Apply for copy certificates

Information we need from you

To find an entry and produce a copy certificate, we need to know if the event took place in the area covered by our registers.

The best way to be sure is to find a corresponding event in the GRO Index. To find the year, quarter and district in which an event took place, use:

Our registers cover the current North Tyneside area. Historically this is the Tynemouth Registration District, and parts of what used to be the Northumberland South Registration District.

If you have found a GRO entry reference, please tell us:

  • the registration district
  • the quarter and the year in which the entry was found
  • the names (as given in the index)

Other register offices might have different fees. We might have to return your application and payment.
