A big change has happened here this week – from today you will be able to order duplicate birth, marriage and death certificates from Essex from the ERO.
As part of a wider change in Registration Services the historic birth, marriage and death registers from the following Register Offices have been brought together at ERO:
- Castle Point & Rochford
- Epping / Loughton
To request a duplicate certificate, you can:
- Use the online form on our website
- Call 0345 603 7632
- E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
- Place your order in the ERO Searchroom
We have already put the new system to good use; our very first customer needed a copy of her daughter’s birth certificate to be able to fly to South Africa today. After a 9am phone call from her we checked that we had the relevant register, ordered it up and prepared the certificate and she collected it from us, all in less than 30 minutes! She was extremely pleased to get this vital document for her holiday as the rest of her family were already at Heathrow Airport.
Copies of historical birth, marriages and death certificates cost £10. They will be produced and posted within five working days.
If you require a certificate more quickly, you can get one the next working day for £25, or within 2 working days for £18.
These prices do not include postage and packing.
Please note: We do not hold the Registration Service birth, marriage and death registers for the parts of the historical county of Essex now administered by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, Thurrock Council and the London Boroughs of Havering, Barking and Dagenham, Waltham Forest, Newham and Redbridge.
