General Register Office: For adult adoptees who do not have a copy of their original birth certificate you can contact the GRO and request this. We also recommend that if you do not know the name of the court where the adoption order was made or the name of the agency involved in your adoption then you should contact the GRO who should hold the court details prior to contacting the local authority.
