Birth, marriage, civil partnership and death certificates


You can order new certificates and copies of certificates held by Thurrock Register Office.

Certificates include:

Basildon Hospital births

We do not hold any records for Basildon Hospital births – we cannot provide certificates for people born there.

For copies of birth certificates where the birth happened in Basildon Hospital, go to Essex Record Office: certificate copies.

How to order a certificate

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Thurrock Register Office is closed until further notice.

At this time, we cannot process standard requests for copy certificates, birth registrations, marriage notices, civil partnership notices, or any ceremonies.
