When your baby is born, you must register their birth with the local registrar where the birth took place within 42 days.

If you are a Lambeth resident you may be able to register a birth at your nearest children's centre. You will be given this option at the time of booking if your postcode is in the catchment area for a centre that currently offers this service.
