  • Please do not provide reference numbers from General Registers Office indexes or from Ancestry.co.uk, findmypast.com or similar websites, because they do not relate to any of the Hackney registers. You must provide the details of the person on the certificate.
  • If you order a certificate for a marriage that took place before 1991, you must state the marriage venue.
  • For Civil Partnerships certificates you must provide the couple's address at the time of the event. Otherwise the copy certificate(s) will exclude this information.
  • If you are unsure whether the birth, death, marriage, or civil partnership took place in Hackney, Shoreditch or Stoke Newington please call us on 020 8356 3000. We are not always able to issue refunds.
