How Do You Obtain A Copy Of Your Birth Certificate
Your birth certificate has specific information about you. It shows where you were born, when you were born, your nationality, weight at birth, and even the time of your birth. It shows your legal name at birth, and in many cases, the names of your mother and father, and helps show lineage. Many birth records also have another identification number, not your national insurance number assigned to them.
There's a plethora of reasons to have a birth record on hand. School children cannot be enrolled without one. Enlisting into the army cannot be done without proper identification. Opening a bank account, obtaining a passport or visa card, getting a credit card at your bank, receiving an inheritance, and even being married can all be hampered without a birth record.
