    Forgot to say - that is England and Wales only. Scotland gets their add-on day at New Year. ;)

    I spent some of my working life as a civil servant (could be quite uncivil at times)
    Did you get Maundy Thusday off? No idea why but we did!

    And we used to have Easter Tuesday and the Queen's Birthday (but not any more).

    Well it looks as though they're still playing "silly beggars".

    I ordered a Will on 9 January.
    Queried it's non-appearance on 10 February.
    Received the "Delivery Notice" on 17 February - the standard "you didn't give the correct details, you need to re-order" letter.
    Complained.
    Received an apology on 19 February - "we are arranging to send correct requested copy".
    No more e-mails.

    Just happened to log into the "Find A Will" site yesterday (29 February) ... and there in "My Wills" it tells me I have a Will delivered 19 February, first downloaded 19 February, available until 21 March.
    What on earth? :eek::eek:

    And there it is - the Will I wanted.

    Moral of this story:
    Keep a record of what you've ordered, and keep checking the site.

    Their emailing system is a little hit and miss, sometimes I get a notification whereas other times I only discover it has arrived by going into my orders.

    As you say
