This is a new site that we are testing!
We are redesigning and improving the Cumbria County Council website which is why these new pages are different.
How to order a copy of a birth certificate, death certificate or a marriage or civil partnership certificate.
You can order a copy of a certificate online.
All orders must be paid for using a debit or credit card when you apply. The card must be in your name and registered to your address. Alternatively we would need to speak to the cardholder who is willing to use their card to pay for your transaction.
Never put credit or debit card details in an email. If we are unable to locate the record and issue the certificate a full refund will be made. We do not accept cheques or postal orders.
If you can't order online, please call us.
Telephone: 0300 303 2472
We receive a lot of calls so we always recommend online as the quickest and easiest way to order. You cannot order certificates by email.

For all certificates for births registered before 1837, please contact the Archive Centre.
