GRO trials Digital Copies of Certificates

From 9th November the GRO will be trialling a new service under which uncertified PDF copies of previously digitised entries in the birth and death indexes will be available at a reduced price of £6 (a paper certificate costs £9.25). The years of coverage for historic entries are as follows:

  • Births: 1837 to 1934
  • Deaths: 1837 to 1957

It is reported that the trial will last for only 3 weeks, but may close earlier as only 45,000 PDFs will be made available at this price.

Further details can be found in the article on the Who Do You Think You Are Magazine website.
