GRO CERTIFICATES

 

Do you need a birth certificate, marriage certificate or death certificate for an event which occurred in England or Wales?

 

I can order certificates for you if you know the the date or quarter and year and location of an event which was registered in England or Wales.  Please enquire.  The following information is required. If you don't have this information, I can search the GRO indexes for the entry of interest - please contact me with the details you have so that I can provide a quote for a search.

CHARGES

 

For events after 1837, the cheapest way to order birth, marriage and death certificates is to use GRO certificate orders - on-line, by telephone or by post. Certificates cost £9.25 when ordered on-line using the GRO link.

 

If it's easier, I can order the certificate for you, if you know the date (or year and quarter) and location of the event.  If you don't have this information, please contact me for a quote.

 

I can obtain certificates for post-1837 events in England & Wales only:

 

Birth, marriage or death certificate:  original certificate sent by 1st class recorded post to UK address = £16.75

 

Birth, marriage or death certificate:  copy of original certificate sent by e-mail = £13.75

 

If you need a birth certificate to apply for a Blue Badge (disabled parking permit) for yourself or a parent but the original birth certificate is lost, I can obtain a replacement certificate:  

English or Welsh birth certificate sent by 1st class recorded post to UK address = £16.75 

(an e-mailed certificate would not be suitable for a Blue Badge application)
