Too late, I noticed  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Wonder if itís worth leaving it in, as others may have the same problem with hyphenated surnames.

No, it wasnít the hyphenated surname. (I donít think)
It was the date.  I entered the decree date. 1st July.
But the Probate date was the 26th August. (I presume 1935)

Attaching again

Itís their indexing system thatís confusing, I only found it by asking for jones year of death 1935,
looking for Morgan- jones death year 1933got me nowhere.

Oh so you think I should reorder with just Jones?  And the august date?

Presumably their computer scans your order without a human hand in sight, so yes, I entered Jones, y o d 1935, nothing else and itís on page 2, it certainly isnít folio number as there isnít one.

Itís indexed with the joneses so it must be findable try 1933 or 1935, I think, but cannot prove, that year of death actually means year of grant.

Admin with will sometimes means you donít get the will because it is not ďattachedĒ and you have to hassle them to get it.

Failed.

So thatís twice Iíve paid
I am giving up.

FIW I wasted several £1.50s getting dates and names not quite right, also folio numbers, and still not working - until I realised I didn't have exactly the right registry office from the selection on the drop down menu. And now always I do a screen shot just before clicking 'add to basket'. Like that, if it still comes back rejected, I can check what I got wrong.

Thatís a good idea. At least then you also have evidence if you do end up having an argument with them.
