Civil Naming (copyright)

You can register a birth at any of our offices which are in Watford, Stevenage, Hatfield, St Albans,
Hemel Hempstead, Hertford, Cheshunt and Bishop's Stortford.

Contact details and directions to registration offices.

Civil Naming Ceremonies are a non-religious alternative for you to welcome children into the family.

If you wish to register a birth in accordance with the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 please telephone 0300 123 4045 for an appointment.
