I ordered 2 x PDF birth certs on Saturday and got them yesterday
I have ordered a m/c (Monday), so fingers crossed that it does get here by the weekend - snail mail for m/c's though.
Same here @MollyMay - hoping it will help with my Lynch/Sullivan lot - doubt it though.
The last time I ordered a marriage cert was back in June and it took about 2 weeks to arrive. I suspect things are speeding up a bit now.
I hope so, although it is one of those where you just take a punt and hope for a snippet of useful info. What's the betting both are full age and both fathers just entered as dec. - well if the bride names a father I will not believe it anyway.
I'm as cynical as you, and I was right to be with the birth certs I ordered. I opened them with eager anticipation, hoping to see something I didn't know, but, guess what I really don't know why I carry on ordering birth certs
Well, I think this must be some sort of record. I ordered a PDF death cert late yesterday afternoon. I had little hope that it was the one I wanted, but, you know how it is
I received said cert at 9.23 this morning, and it is the right one
Many congratulations to the GRO - I don't think I've ever received one in less than 24 hours
Excellent service @AnnB !
Maybe people are not ordering many, thinking that there are still delays.
Sssshhhhh - don't say a word!
That's what I thought Jan.....I might put it to the test again later
Lucky you - still no sign of my m/c ordered last Monday
Nor of the one I ordered - I suppose as the marriages are not PDF's, they aren't so easy
Still waiting for mine too. GRO site just say "being processed" or some such wording. I keep hoping that it will say "despatched".
Snap - in progess on mine
I guess pdf's can be accessed remotely and sent, but certs need someone working at the GRO to find, copy and then post them.
Oooh, despatched 4 August - must have been after I looked on that day
When did you order it? - mine is still in progress due for dispatch 31st July
Ordered on 25 July - due for despatch 31 July.
It arrived in the post today. (Absolutely awful copy to read though)
There is hope for mine then, I ordered on 27th delivery due 31st.
Shame you can hardly read yours, after all that waiting in anticipation
Witnesses really - even with a magnifying glass and light. Will post a bit later when I have sorted out scanning to my copmputer.
