You can also order online, and pay slightly less :-) ....................

Go to the GRO site ....

Click on Order Certificates.

You have to register but it is free, so scroll down to Register or Login

Then click on Place an Order

It costs £11 if you order online, vs £15 by phone or mail for Standard service

Thank you both, I have ordered my cert online now & was easier than I thought.
Can't believe two ladies with same date of birth & same full name & same fathers name, so now had to buy the second cert.
