Order copy certificates

Blackpool registration service holds the original records of all the births, marriages and deaths that have been registered within its district since 1 July 1837.

We also hold civil partnership records registered in Blackpool since 5 December 2005.

If the event took place in Fylde or Wyre, then in some cases we may also hold these records. If in doubt where the event took place, search for Lancashire birth, marriage and death certificates. The website will tell you which registration service holds the record.
