Obtain a certificate

We can supply birth, death, marriage and civil partnership certificates for events which have taken place anywhere in Scotland for previous years and for an event registered in any Fife office for the current calendar year.

The cost of a birth, death, marriage or civil partnership extract from Scotland is £10 if the registration date is still within its first month.  Extracts out with the first month will cost £15 for the first copy with each additional copy of the same certificate costing £10.

You can request and pay for your copy certificate online by selecting the relevant form on this page depending on whether your date of registration is within its first month or outwith its first month.

You can only request one transaction per online form so if you require a different type of certificate for the same person or the same certificate for another person then you must use another form.

Please note:  there is a 1.25% charge if you are paying for your certificate(s) by credit card.

You can also order an extract by calling the telephone number below and pay for this service over the phone by debit or credit card or make an appointment at any one of our Registration Centres where you can pay in cash.

If you already have an abbreviated certificate, telephone us for an appointment in one of the offices, and take the abbreviated certificate with you.  You will then not have to pay a search fee which will save you £5.

If you require a certificate urgently, we also offer a same-day service for an additional fee of £5 per certificate but you must telephone us for this service.

We aim to provide certificates within 5 working days.
