This is only loosely related to family history, sorry. I am starting the process of applying for an Irish passport and it needs a long form birth certificate for me and my Irish father (England and Northern Ireland respectively). Neither of us has has one, is it possible to get replacements? I don’t think I ever had a long form one, I’ve certainly never seen it.

chemenger it's quite straightforward to get copies .

Make sure you use the gov.uk site as there are other sites that offer a certificate service and look just as official but charge more .
England -
www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/menu.asp

NI -
www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/ordering-life-event-certificates

if you get stuck feel free to post again or PM me .
