    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.:headbang::D - 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 :sceptical: I really don't know why I carry on ordering birth certs :rolleyes:

    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 :nailbiting:
    I received said cert at 9.23 this morning, and it is the right one 8(:-)

    Many congratulations to the GRO - I don't think I've ever received one in less than 24 hours :)

    Maybe people are not ordering many, thinking that there are still delays. :sceptical:

    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.
