Birth Parents

Cannot obtain identifying information themselves and must work through an intermediary in the UK. There are times when information must be sent to you through an agency in Australia and we are happy to help with that.

Contact the General Register Office website to obtain information about finding someone who was adopted if you’re a birth relative and about the Intermediary Agencies.
You can also register on their Contact Register for a fee.
