Just looked at the status of my order, apparently the remaining certificates were despatched 1 August!
Looks as though processing orders is catching up!

Yes same for me.  2 death certificates ordered last Thursday 6th, one before the 4pm deadline and one after.

Both received at 9.30 am this morning Tuesday 11th and that's with the weekend in between.

Very good service.

I ordered a PDF death cert at 14:59 on Sunday 11th and it came at 9:50 this morning (Tuesday 13th). That's quicker than I've ever had one pre-lockdown. I was thinking I would be lucky to get it before Friday. Excellent service

Excellent service received by me too.

PDF death cert ordered Friday 9th Oct at 15.45 - email at 10.52 Monday 12th Oct telling me it was ready to view and download.

Bonus it was the man I expected and confirmed a little theory I'd been working on.

A very happy bunny!  ;D
