New GRO service for DIGITAL Certificates

The GRO have announced that they are providing a scaled down, but faster service for Birth and Death certificates via their website.

You will see after logging in to the GRO website ( that a new link has appeared – Order a Digital Image.

There are currently only 2 options (more will follow), currently:

  1. Births 1837 to 1922
  2. Deaths 1837 to 1887

They cost £2.50 and the service is completed after a few minutes. This sounds very good and allows for a far quicker turn round of the data for a very reasonable cost.
