The stillbirth should be registered within 42 days (six weeks) and cannot be registered more than three months after it occurred.
Stillbirths should be registered in the district the baby was delivered. This means that stillborn babies delivered at both Queen Alexandra Hospital and St. Mary’s Hospital should be registered at Portsmouth register office.
If it is more convenient, you can go to any register office in England and Wales, and they will pass the information to Portsmouth register office for registration. If you register at another office, certificates will be posted out to you rather than issued immediately.
You can make an appointment to see a registrar as soon as you have the medical certificate from the hospital, doctor or midwife. If no medical certificate is available because no medical professional was in attendance, contact the register office for advice.
