Look up and search for birth records. Individual birth records can be looked up using the systemNumber printed in the bottom-left of the birth certificate. Alternatively, it is possible to search for birth records by supplying the date of birth, surname and at least the first forename of the child.

Note: You will only receive the fields you are authorized to view, regardless of whether we hold them on file or the relevant JSON schemas - V0 / V1.
