Re: Certificates price rise

Please note that these increases in fees apply to the UK General Record Office (GRO) and not to the National Records of Scotland (NRS).

The charges applied by the NRS appear to remain unchanged and can be found in detail on their website: NRS_service_charges_2019-01

My regards, Bill

Re: Father ?

Good evening Ann,

I agree with Jane's suggested recording method and would show Mary's father as an unamed father and the 'Status' of the 'Spouse/Partner' in FH as "Unknown" that is unless you know otherwise.
