ePetiton for uncertified copies of Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates

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
