I paid a visit to the Isle of Man Civil Registry just this week.
For a fee of 5.50, I was able to search the 1885 Register of Births, and photograph the required entry. Only available in person, of course. :D
Was the 5.50 a per visit or a per certificate fee?

Neither! ;D
Per register! If I need to look at numerous births in the same year, then it's just 5.50.
Each year is a single register; and separate registers for Births, Marriages and Deaths.

Scottish certificates are different again.  I have had the certificates of my children and my certificate rejected when a UK birth certificate is asked for.  I was even barred from applying for a job because I don't have a "valid UK birth certificate".


I can't afford to go abroad just now but know even if I end up financially better off I don't think I'll be able to take my children abroad on holiday.  The child trafficing rules would also requir that I have a letter of permission from their father.  My ex would never give me that.

A large national company whom I won't name for fear of being sued.  They told me I had to apply to the Home Office for leave to remain and a work permit.

I think you ought to be suing them!
