How far away from London are you?

try going to your local birth registration office thing and asking them.

Or, if you ever happen to be passing, pop in to where you were registered with around £7and you'll get a copy there and then.

Hmm.. it may end up being worth it.. As you'll need a copy of your birth certificate for all things in life, couldn't you get your mum to pay?

If your local place can't help, you'll have to head back to London.

You need to:

For less recent births

You can obtain certificates of birth, marriages and deaths in any of the following ways:

In person from the Family Records Centre (FRC)
By Post, telephone or fax from the General Register Office in Southport
Locally from the register office where the event was originally registered (see above)
Email enquiries about certificate services in England and Wales can be sent to [email protected]

For full details, including current fees, visit the Office for National Statistics website.

Only works if you sent it by recorded delivery and can prove they received it...

I lost mine recently and needed to get another.

You can get it in two forms - a big one and a more condensed one. I think the detailed one is £10 and the mini one (which can be used for most stuff e.g. passports etc.) £7.

Contact your local office, I doubt whether you will need to go to London - they could probably arrange for a copy to be made in London, and forwarded to the registry office in your locale.

My mum doesnt even have a birth certificate, and she seems to be getting along fine. (I have always cruelly used this fact as an excuse to confirm that she really is an extraterrestrial)

You usually need it as proof of identity and age, my mum needed hers when starting a new job.

EDIT: Your mum will have one, even if she doesn't have a copy herself.

It's also needed to get a Passport and, ironically (but logically), a Death Certificate - among other things.

Well, it's never too early to be prepared - I went shopping for a tombstone yesterday, but there's already a mistake in the inscription.
