Get Your Certificates NOW and beat the GRO Price Rise
The General Register Office (GRO) is the only source for official Birth, Marriage and Death certificates, 1837 onwards. Current charges have not risen since 2010 but they are due to rise 16th February 2019. The new charges are listed here:
Standard Rate, approx 1-week postal delivery: £11.00 per certificate (£9.25 until 16.02.19) PDF version sent to your e-mail address, approx 4 working days: £7.00 (£6 until 16.02.19)
The priority service – next-day – carries a higher increase: £35 per certificate from £23.40
Some new charges will also be introduced from 16th February: an additional charge of £3 if the full index reference is not provided and a £3.50 fee if a certificate order cannot be filled because the information provided is incorrect.
The rates charged by the GRO are fixed and they are what you pay if you apply direct by post, online or telephone. Some genealogy websites may charge commission if you order through them.
We are pleased to advise if you need help with ordering certificates … and the GRO is also very helpful
