Order birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates

You can order a copy of birth, marriage, civil partnership and death certificates. Legally, these certificates are called extracts. You can use them to replace an original certificate if it's lost or damaged.

We can provide certificates for any event registered in Scotland from 1855 onwards. 

You can order a certificate if it was issued:

  • Within Aberdeenshire
  • Somewhere else in Scotland as long as it has been added to the national electronic register

Events registered outside of Aberdeenshire

If the event was registered outwith Aberdeenshire and happened in the last 12 months, please contact us on 01467 468 468 before ordering a copy. We will check if the certificate is available from the national electronic register and if we can issue it. If we can't, we will give you contact details for the local authority who can help you. 

Events registered outside of Scotland

Please note we aren't able to provide certificates registered outwith Scotland. You can order English and Welsh certificates from the GOV.UK website and you can order Northern Irish certificates from the NI direct website.
