    When did the GRO put up their prices?

    I just ordered a birth cert and a death cert. Death cert 7 pounds, Birth cert 10 pounds!

    I thought all certs were 7 pounds:(

    Did you remember to tick the box which said you had the full GRO reference - if you don't tick it you will be charged 10 pounds!

      Elaine,
      I wasn't given that choice for the birth cert.....I did wonder why?

        I'm afraid you were, you just missed it.

        It's the same for all certs: on the first page it says "Is the General Register Office Index known?" and you have to click for yes or no. If you don't, they'll charge you £10.

            Was it a more recent birth certificate? I don't think you can get those with just a GRO index reference. I think its within the last 50 years? (but I'm probably wrong :o)

                  And you aren't alone - I think we've all either done this, or nearly done this!

                    And this thread will alert others to the risk if they're about to apply!

                    My own mistake was to order on the basis of my copied-over notes - and not double-checking back to the source (or even the source-note). I ended up applying for the wrong quarter!

                    And just recently, I applied for a death cert transcription from NSW. I realised, only just in time to correct it (after the initial application!), that I'd applied using all the right refs - but using the maiden name instead of the married name!

                        Easy mistake to make, I have nearly done it myself several times but just remembered at the last minuit. Happy Christmas all...
