ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Can someone tell me please if the PDF applies to 'Marriages'

I have ordered only 'Birth & Death' in PDF early last year.

Also, is the Price increase from Feb 19th to what will it be...

I'm in Aust. so will need to work out what it will be in $'s

Thanks!. :-)

No, just Birth & Death certificates.

Paper copies will increase to £11 which is in line with the current cost from local registry offices.

PDF versions rise to £7.

If you’re going to place an order before the price rise, check the time difference between Australia & the UK.

NOTE ...............

the GRO page now states .............

"GRO has been piloting a service providing PDF copies of historical birth and death records. From the 16th February 2019 PDF’s have become a permanent service."

That page also now says ............

"From 16th February 2019 GRO .......................... made changes to delivery options. EXTRA CHARGES WILL APPLY IF YOU DO NOT ORDER CERTIFICATES ONLINE or include a GRO index reference (where available)." (my emphasis)
