Anybody else tried out the trial PDF emailed certificates from the GRO?
Just wondered how long they take to arrive

Hi, is the link on the usual page? I thought by getting a pdf we'd get it instantly, shame :(

Yes it is the last box on the certificate type.

I was hoping that as well, the worrying thing is phase two of the trial is
Pilot phase 2 (approx. three week duration)
PDF copies of all birth, death, marriage and civil partnership records, within 3 hours. These PDFs will cost £45.

This rather points to them never supplying an automatic system

I ordered one this morning and it's due to arrive within about a week. However, that's still quicker than the usual system and if it's more than £3 cheaper it's got to be worthwhile

Some PDFs which were ordered on the 9th were delivered by the 11th and are trimmed black and white scans of the register page.

On the other hand some people who ordered before the above people have still not received their PDFs.
Their seems to be no logic to the way the PDFs are dispatched at present

When the PDFS are processed further stats are displayed on the previous orders page.
E.G. processed by 11.30 am on the 9th November, A dispatch time that says it was an hour before they arrived in the persons email at14.29 on the 11th.

I don’t understand why an email took an hour to arrive but then again another person noticed the following.-

Order Submitted: 09 Nov 2016 12:02
Est. Despatch date: 16 Nov 2016

Application Progress:
In Progress 09/11/2016 22:13:41
Despatched 10/11/2016 10:31:42

That order had not been received by the 11th *

One person rung the GRO and was told “despatched doesn't mean that they have been sent, but have been found, and could still be 5 working days...”

Cheers
Guy

PS the order marked * was received this morning (Sunday) at 09.43

I ordered qty 4 death certs on the 9th Nov & got a confirmation of delivery on 16th Nov.
Three arrived in my inbox today (14th) & the other is still showing 'In Progress'
As Guy says, they are trimmed copies of the register page
