Not sure if this is related to Birmingham or UK wide.  Have a look and see what you think.

My goodness me, that's expensive.  :o   You would really, really, want to see it to pay that much.

Indeed - some councils are free, some used DeceasedOnline and that can cost 2-3 per query, some will charge per hour.

When you've paid 200 per year for Ancestry, anything extra has to be really well justified :)

I very rarely go on Ancestry now, can't seem to get to grips with their contents system.  If I ever did wish to see anything I would get a pay as you go package.

I use find my past and their Pro package is about 156 per year.   A lot depends on what records you wish to access doesn't it.
