GRO index PDF Birth Certificate
« on: Saturday 30 December 17 20:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I wonder if someone out there can tell me how I can order a PDF copy of a birth certificate and death certificate when I cannot find the entry on the GRO index ?
I have the reference numbers from other websites so I know they are registered.  I have asked the GRO but they have not answered me yet

Have you tried spelling variations?

Or tell us who you are looking for, and we might be able to help?

If you  log into the GRO website and click the Search The GRO Indexes option, you can enter the details (name, year, district) to find the entry you need  Using spelling variations is as good idea, because not all transcript sites spell entries the same!  On the right of the entry are options to order cert or pdf.  If you click on the option you want, the order form will autofill the data needed.

Hope this helps

PDFs are only available for births from 1837 to 1916 and deaths from 1837 to 1957.

Are the records you're looking for within those dates?

Thank you all for suggestions.
Yes I have tried all these.
The year is 1910 Manchester  Rowland Corbett

Do I assume if it does not show on GRO index I cannot order it as a PDF
