Copy certificates

We can provide you with copy certificates for births, deaths and most marriages and civil partnerships that took place in the county of Northamptonshire.

How much does a copy certificate cost?

There is a statutory fee of £10 per copy.

Marriages that took place in a church or place of worship

If you were married in a church or place of worship in Northamptonshire, please contact them first as they may still hold the register of your marriage. In this case they will need to provide the copy certificate. Copy certificates from a church or place of worship cost £7 each. 

Apply for a copy certificate
