English adoption certificate.

Having never seen an English adoption cert, what would it look like, and what information would it contain.

I have recently bought a birth cert, and written on the side of the usual information of parents etc. is written "Adopted", and the registrars signature.

Would it be a 'short cert', with the adopted name, place and date of birth.
