We can provide assistance locating specific certificates and performing searches of records in a number of areas.
Staffordshire Registration Services has custody of registers which have recorded births, deaths and marriages in Staffordshire since July 1837 when registration was introduced.
Applications for certificates can be made over the phone using credit card payment or in person at an office if you prefer to pay with cash. Postal applications can be made with cheques made payable to 'Staffordshire County Council'.
Please note the application fee includes the cost of return postage.
