When I mentioned this On Twitter I received a reply from FindMyPast saying to contact them and say that I wanted a subscription for just one month. It is worth a try.

Do they give a "price list" anywhere which states how many credits it costs to view records?  I seem to remember somebody saying certain things cost a whopping 60 credits per view.

Hi Paulinej

Sorry I can't see anything at the bottom aside from the voucher code box

If the page looks like this, click on the black arrow and the Pay-as-you-go options should drop down.

This is part of a reply from FindMyPast Support Team to an enquiry  "Monthly subscription options", dated 26th August in section "What our customers say about us" which is at bottom of subscriptions page.

"We are currently testing some new packages on site so not all subscribers will see the monthly subscription option."

I used the customer support online chat and explained I could not find the pay as you go option.

First they gave me a link to the Irish site. Then they gave me a link straight into my account details allowing me to buy 60 credits using my saved card details.  Said the option could only be accessed via this link or by contacting them.

Pay as you go if you have not used it before is not available anymore apparently for the UK.
