Registering a stillbirth

A still-birth occurring in Scotland can be registered at any registration office in Scotland.

The mother of the child (and/or father if the parents are married) must attend the Registrars Office within 21 days.

The Registrar requires the Form 6 (Certificate of Stillbirth) from the medical practitioner or midwife along with a marriage certificate (if applicable).

Please contact the Registration Offices for further information and to make an appointment.
