English and Welsh BMD certificate costs to soar

Brace yourselves...

From 16 February 2019, the price of English and Welsh civil birth, marriage and death certificates is to soar to £11 from the current £9.25. Priority orders are to dramaticially increase in cost further, from the current £23.40 to £35. Some additional new fees are also to be introduced, such as a charge of £3 if a full index reference is not supplied.

Full details of the rises are available at https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2018/1268/pdfs/uksi_20181268_en.pdf, with the story initially broken to the genie community by Peter Calver of Lost Cousins at https://www.lostcousins.com/newsletters2/xmasday18.htm#BMD.

Best to get any remaining certs ordered up fast!
