ePetition for Uncertified BMD Certificates
Under current legislation, the GRO can only “release information on Births, Marriage or Deaths by means of the issue of a paper certified copy Cert of the relevant entry, and payment of the relevant statutory fee for a certified copy”.
The ePetition is seeking to request the government to bring forward legislation to enable the GRO to provide uncertified copies for research purposes, these would be charged at a lower fee then the current certified copy. I would therefore encourage you to sign the petition to encourage the government to debate the issue and bring forward the appropriate legislation.
The petition can be found at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/1792
