To correct a mistake on a birth, death or marriage record you will need to show evidence that the information was incorrect at or near the time of the event. In most cases, vital records list only what was true at the time of the birth, marriage or death, and updates are not made for changes that happened later. For example, you cannot change your birth record solely for a legal change of name.
To amend or correct a birth, death or marriage certificate, you have to contact the Registry of Vital Records and Statistics. A representative will give you information on the necessary evidence or paperwork you need to request a record correction.
