General Register Office certificates
Following the withdrawal of the reference checking facility I have received
confirmation from GRO that if a customer applies for a certificate from GRO
and does not have a GRO reference, they are able to supply information to
help identify the record. GRO will search in the year they quote together,
if necessary, with a year either side. If GRO cannot find the record on this
basis, they will refund the fee in full.
Using the "non-quoted reference" route does entail the likelihood of a
longer response time for those using the "standard" service. GRO aims to
despatch on or by the 4th working day for those quoting a reference, but on
or by the 15th working day for those without such a reference.
