    Number 1 of 7 death certificate has arrived today.

    It's a right one but who the **** is Thomas Smith who made his mark and registered the death? and was in attendance but no relationship given?

    Today I got three certs,
    Ordered 22 April
    Despatch date 29th

    Mind you I do live in Southport, but anyone who is still waiting for certs due for despatch on 21st I would defintely check up on them.

    I phoned yesterday to inquire about my missing cert from the 18th.

    She explained about the backlog, and said any from the 18th were due out yesterday (although that doesn't explain why I've already got 6 of 'em). She told me to give it another week.

    The ones due out on the 24th will be a few days late, but the ones that are due out on the 2nd should be ok, because they expect to have cleared the backlog by then.

    The new computer systen isn't to do with online applications, she said.

    Today, I received one from my '24th' batch. Still short on the '18th', but at least my hunch was correct with this one. Hope the other 2 are as well.

    Rushed home in eager anticipation yesterday - still no certs! If they are not at home this evening then I will ring tomorrow. (I've had one from the 21st (birth) but still awaiting 2 marriages)

    I've got 2 more today - but I think they've sent the wrong one for one of 'em. I didn't keep a record so I can't prove it.

    I wanted Thomas Needham d O-N-D 1857 Bakewell v7b p383

    and got

    Thomas Needhamd O-N-D 1856 Basford v 7b p75.

    All the names and numbers I type in stay in a kind of drop down when I order.

    I have ordered from both Bakewell & Basford and obviously from vol 7b. But I don't have either page 383 or 75 listed.

    Update
    Have now phoned about the wrong cert - it wasn't what I ordered, but I'd entered the wrong reference anyway, so they'd attempted to find the right one.

    Think I'd have preferred the partial refund. Previously, if I'd got the ref wrong, this is what happens. Where do I stand with this?
