The GRO site is asking people not to request these if they are not urgent. So for the last year I've held back from placing any orders, given that they would only be for genealogical purposes, which I can't say are really "urgent". Does anyone have recent experience of how the GRO is responding to this sort of request at the moment?
I also need to order several certificates from the GRO, not originals are need and as I live in Canada I would prefer just to receive PDFs of them. They no longer show this method on their website, have they stopped using this system. I have been trying to get a response from them by email for almost two weeks and still no answers.
