I would like to obtain a copy of my deceased grandfathers birth certificate. He was born in London, Ontario in 1912 before emigrating to UK. Can i do this and who do i contact.

Births that occurred less than 92 years ago are protected under the Privacy Act and can only be obtained by next-of-kin or the executor of the estate (proof required). Births that occurred 92+ years ago are available on microfilm worldwide through LDS Family History Centres, online images are available through an Ancestry subscription. Please see the Birth Records page on this site.
