The certificates will be obtained from either the local register office, or the ONS depending on which is thought to provide the quicker service. Many local offices can issue certificates by return of post, and I will use my discretion to go via the quicker route. The costs are the same regardless of the source. After the e mail is sent, the certificates are despatched by air mail.

Costs in local currencies are detailed below.

The indexes to these records are available at:
The Family Records Centre, 1 Myddelton Street, Islington, LONDON EC1R 1UW
These indexes are also available in many large libraries in the UK and in many family history research centres.
The information was held at St.Catherine's House until 1997, so whenever you see a reference to St.Catherine's, it's now the Family Records Centre where the information is held.
