Our certificate ordering service is suspended until further notice. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Please be aware that there are ongoing problems with the national registration system that is affecting all register offices in England and Wales. It is having a major impact on the ability to print documents. 

As a result, our certificate ordering service is suspended until further notice. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Until the issue is resolved you can either order your certificate from the General Register Office (GRO) who hold all the records for England and Wales or by telephoning the GRO on 0300 123 1837.
