We can only supply copy certificates for births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships that occurred in the Stockport Registration District.
For events not registered in the Stockport Registration District you will need to contact the register office in the district where the event was registered, to buy a copy certificate.
Standard certificates contain all the details in the register and cost £10 each. Certificates are normally available for collection or posting out within 5 working days.
We also offer an express service for the same day issue of a copy certificate.
This is available for an extra fee of £12.00 per person, for example:
- If you order a copy of a certificate with an express service, this will come to a total cost of £22, which includes the £10 cost of a copy certificate and VAT.
- If your order two or more copies of a certificate with an express service, this will come to a total cost of £32 for 2 copies (£10 for each copy plus £12 express service fee and VAT), £42 for 3 copies, £52 for 4 copies, and so forth.
- If you order a copy of a certificate of two or more people with an express service, this will come to a total cost of £44 for 2 people (£10 for each certificate copy plus £12 for each person’s express service fee and VAT), £66 for 3 people (£10 for each certificate copy plus £12 for each person’s express service fee and VAT), and so forth.
Certificates are normally available on the same day or whilst you wait.
