The Registrar of Vital Statistics is the keeper of birth, death, marriage records, domestic partnership records and civil union records, also referred to as “vital records”. These records are confidential and not openly accessible to the public. As per State Law, the Registrar is limited as to whom a record may be issued.  A Vital record can be obtained in the municipality where the event occurred. The eligibility and necessary requirements are contained below.

The office of the Registrar is located in the tax office at the front of City Hall. Office hours are Monday – Friday 9:00am to 4:00pm, excluding holidays. Marriage license applications are taken until 3:45pm, unless an appointment has been made.

Requests for certified copies of a Vital Record may be processed either in person at the above address, or by mail, if the appropriate information, requirements, and payment are mailed to:

City of Northfield Registrar
1600 Shore Road
Northfield, NJ 08225

Please make checks payable to “City of Northfield” and a SASE must be included.

Fees:

$5.00 for each Certified copy of a Vital record
$28.00 for a Marriage or Civil Union Application

Acceptable Identification is required, a valid and current photo driver’s license or a valid and current County ID are acceptable on their own. Please note that “valid and current” means with the address where you live at the time of your application and not expired. If you do not have either one, then you will need two alternate forms of identification.
