Children born in Guernsey
The same forms are required as for a child born in Alderney. The forms are available from the Alderney Court office and can be returned to the office, for us to forward to the Greffe in Guernsey. A fee is charged for the Certificate of Birth, which will be sent to the address given when filling out the form. The Birth is then entered on the Guernsey Register of Births.
