How long does it take for  a birth certificate to come back from Wexford to UK?

did you order the cert from somewhere in Wexford or from the GRO in Roscommon ?

Orders from the GRO head office (www.groireland.ie) are taking about 4 or 5 weeks at the moment.

Hi Shane
The address on the form was to
Civil Registration Office,  Office of the Registrar General, Government Offices,  Convent Road,         Roscommon,  Co. Roscommon,     Ireland, so I guess another couple of weeks.

I have a Richard Cardiff born around 1838 in my family tree. He was married to Catherine Rossiter. I've picked up 3 children so far Thomas born 1872 Johanna (my G Grandmother) born 1879 and Catherine born 1882 due to the big gaps between their ages I assume that there were many more children so this could be the father of your Richard Cardiff. They were from Tacumshin in Wexford.

Thanks,
Carol

Hi Carol
This is very interesting as I know my great grandfather Richards father was also Richard.
Richard Junior came over to Wales with his brother Will.
There are two of Richard Cardiffs children still living my great aunt Catherine Myra and Hilda.
My grandad David John Glanville  Cardiff (known as Glan) died 1990.

I am still awaiting a reply from GRO in Wexford.
Thanks
Angela

I think I've spoken to you on GenesReunited and you have access to my tree and all information that I have.

Thanks,
C

I am still waiting for a birth certificate from Wexford GRO, is it normal to have to wait this long?
Thanks

I have not ordered certs from the GRO by post myself so I dont know exactly how long it takes. From what other people have reported here on rootschat order had recently been taking 4 or 5 weeks.

I suspect that they are receiving a large number of orders from people using the LDS index and are a bit swamped.

did you provide the full index information with your order ?

Thanks Shane, I used the refs you kindly supplied me as I am sure this must be my greatgrandfather.

Well I am perplexed as today 9th oct I received my certificate, I gave the refs that were so kindly given to me on this site, and I have received a certificate for Richard John Cardiff born 1st Jan 1876 in Main Street Wexford, father John Cardiff occupation Grocer and mother Maria Blake.

I have a copy of my greatgrandfather Richard's marriage certificate and it states his father was Richard Cardiff and his occupation was given as a farm labourer.  I put this info on the form with the stats.

What do you think?  ???
