    I wouldn't bother - Peter just said that from his observations it's just getting better:

    Judging from recent contributions to the discussion on the LostCousins Forum the Probate Service (or rather, their contractors) are at last beginning to clear the backlog of wills, many ordered as long ago as July, and supposedly due for delivery more than 2 months ago."

    I'm still waiting for my August 10 order of 4 wills. I wish they would send a note to say they are working on it BUT that would take a lot of time to send a note to everyone still waiting that would be better spent working their way through the orders. Oh dear about hiring outside help to catch up. Maybe the One pound fifty cost won't last.

    That's good, Glen. I hope they have been useful.

    All the wills I ordered on 23rd July came ages ago. I think I was one of the first to order. Then I ordered 16 more on 12th August. They were due on 27th August. One came very quickly as it was from a couple of years ago, but I suspect I still have a wait for the others. I have more I want to order too.

    I'm still waiting for my first lot due 25 Aug but have had some of the ones I ordered after then but the first ones were direct ancestors which will hopefully be useful to me.

    No sign of mine ordered 6th August and no response to my query email either, despite getting the inital reply that said they dealt with queries in 2 days!

    I was very excited to see that one of my wills ordered 10th August had arrived. Nope - rejected because there was no folio number so I have to reapply and repay. According to their instructions if there is no number leave the box blank - which I did, so a stroppy email has gone to them.
