How to Order BMD Certificates

Ordering and paying for BMD (birth, marriage and death) certificates is expensive enough without being ripped off by some websites that offer to order “official” BMD certificates for you. All they are doing is ordering them on your behalf while, often, charging through the nose. Ordering a certificate in England & Wales will cost you no more than £9.25 from the GRO, but this website is currently charging £25 for ordering certificates.

Below are some links of where to order birth, death or marriage certificates without paying any surcharges.
