GRO Pilot 3: PDF copies of non-digitised records

Now underway until at 4pm on 12 April, or when 40,000 PDF's have been ordered, the (UK) General Register Office is trialling a service to provide PDF copies of non-digitised records. Records will be emailed as a PDF. They will not be immediately viewable.

England and Wales records which are available as PDF's in pilot 3 include:

Births: 1935-2006
Deaths: 1958-2006
Marriages: 1837-2010

Applications for each PDF which cost £8, must be made online and include a GRO index reference.

Note: A PDF is not a certificate and has no value for services where a certificate is required e.g. a Passport or Driving Licence application, or Notice of Marriage

Order from https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp
