Hi bea - for the passport office you need a replacement document. We had to do this as we were applying for passports and packing to move at the same time. You've guessed it the birth certificate for DS went into packing (oh dear). The registrar department were really good. I went into them and explained and although they couldn't do it there and then they did send one out first class and we got it the next day.

go to registry office where you registered them (or do it online if u have moved far away) fill in a form, ask for long/full birth certificate as this is what the passport office require. if they were born after 98 i think it is, then they can print off the full birth certificate there and then. take some id with u as well.

call first. they'll tell you how much it'll be and if they can print them off or post them out. very quick and painless.

i can't believe it can be sooo simple... just gave the office a call and then said just drop in, fill out form and then they give you a copy... she said she didn't need any id or anything... however i'm taking everything i've got!!!

thanks again!
