I had an email to say they couldnít find the certificate I had ordered. Silly me I put the wrong quarter on it. Itís a shame they couldnít put two and two together and realised that I ordered a birth and death of the same child. So Iím reordering it later on today.

Out of interest, has anyone had an email from GRO saying they are ready to view and download? Ordered more yesterday and it still says we should get one! 🤔

I've just had emails to say my pdfs are now ready to view - i downloaded them on Monday  ;D

Maybe that was the maintenance they did this morning! The emails include a link to a survey (also available in Welsh).

Edited to add: the survey asks some interesting questions about what we'd like to see in future  ;D

It could be that one section deals with births, another marriages and a third deaths.    :-\

I've just received an email about a PDF I ordered on 15 October.  I'd already opened it though thanks to Jomot advising me that I didn't need a COL number.

I ordered mine on a Monday (16th)  with due date Friday (20th) they arrived the day before.

There is this on their website-
Q23. Will I receive a refund if a PDF order is despatched late?
No. Whilst we endeavour to process applications within target, this is only a service aim.

Wondered why Marriages have been excluded?
