I want to change the birth certificate of my child, as I have now married her biological father. Can I, and, if so, how do I do it?

Yes, you can do that by contacting the General Register Office by e-mail to corrections.re-reg@gro.gsi.gov.uk  or by telephone on 0300 123 1837, and their opening hours are Monday to Friday, 8 am to 8 pm, and Saturday 9 am to 4 pm.  Although there is a website for applying for new copies of certificates, currently the www.gro.gov.uk website does not allow you to download the relevant form to apply to amend the birth certificate.  As a result, it will be necessary for you to contact the GRO by telephone or by e-mail.
