    I ordered a PDF birth certificate on 7th April, and I know it's going to be delayed, of course. Has anyone received one recently and how long was it since the date of the order?

    I contacted them and had this reply on the 14 April.

    I've been desperate for several PDFs over the last six weeks but just haven't bothered ordering, knowing how departments are operating at the minute. Most are still trying to equip their employees with home computers, so... I think I'll just wait.

    I would love the marriage certificate I ordered to arrive - hopefully it will help with Irish side of the family I am looking at. When I looked today, it still said order was being processed :(

    Looks like they've started early here. I ordered a dvd, it was supposed to arrive last Monday, looked on tracking to see a message from Royal Mail saying they were sorry for the delay.

    We've had disrupted deliveries for the last month. They only deliver every other day, owing to reduced staff.

    Last Saturday was the first time that there was no delivery and it is because of Coronavirus.Safety of their staff.
    Because it was privatised some wonder if Saturday post will return after lock down.
