    I ordered a standard and a decorative certificate for my daughter got the actual birth certificate within the hour but had to call them 6 weeks later to find out where our decorative one was. Lady printed and posted it that day. Perhaps a phone call to follow up would be a good idea - someone probably thinks someone else did it

    Firstly, I thought it was "up to 6-8 weeks" that they stated it could take.

    Ring up and ask if there are any problems. They billed me for DD4's when I ordered it with DD5's, but didn't send it because somewhere along the line the paperwork had been lost and it hadn't been lodged.

    I was very slack and it took a further nine years before I took the papers into the office by hand. Three weeks later the certificate arrived - that had been paid for nine years earlier. Thankfully they were able to link it up with the payment they had previously taken.

    With ds's I got a letter when he was 7 1/2 weeks old, i had to send it back as there was confusion with what was written

    It was a massive pita as I was still on newstart til he was like 10 weeks old and I received no baby bonus til then either
