Baby loss certificates

A stillbirth is a child born after 24 weeks of pregnancy, who did not show any signs of life after being born. You can register a stillbirth at York Register Office.

Bereaved parents in England who lose a baby before 24 weeks of pregnancy can receive a baby loss certificate in recognition of their loss. As a registration service, we're not involved in baby loss certificates in York.

Baby loss certificates are available free of charge, from the government. You do not need to request a certificate if you prefer not to.

See more information, and details of how to apply for a baby loss certificate.
