Hi I've found CAMDEN helpful and received birth certs from them. London Borough of ENFIELD tell me they aren't staffed enough to do checks, etc but have sent me marriage certs when I gave them the vol and page refs. They couldn't find one marriage cert but the GRO sent it without any probs. Jenny

Enfield Registry Office (Gentlemen's Row) will only accept postal applications. Having said that, they quote a one week delivery time but I got mine within two working days. Lyndsey

Just phoned my local office, Hitchin and Stevenage district and they do do this service. If you don't mind waiting a week it's £7.00 If you want it quicker its £10.00 Guess where i'm going in a couple of days ?

Hi all, just been reading this thread and wondered why so much of it has been deleted?

More than likely, they will be deleted nudges (bring the thread forward).

Macclesfield, Cheshire will do ANYTHING, they are stars. Single look-ups please, don't overload them. Just email the library and ask.

Hawarden Noth Wales are good too.
