Certificates in 5 Days.

Obviously I can't get them to your letter box in that time, but I can normally scan or transcribe them to the <in box> of your e mail address, so if speed of information appeals to you, then read on ! This page however relates to the provison of Probates from the Probate Sub Registry in York. If you want a pre 1858 Probate or Will located at a local archive office it should be possible to obtain it but you will need to contact me for the cost.

The Service:

Probates or Administrations are obtained from York Probate Sub Registry.
On receipt by me, they are scanned to you by e mail
The entries are then posted by air mail to you. The usual delivery time is about a week or so after the scan.
Generally the time scale to provide these documents is between three and four weeks.
If you would prefer not have have a scan but have the Probates sent to your home address, please see the Sterling Payment Service

The Costs

The preferred method of payment is by credit card and if you adopt this method the cost is £ 16 To pay by credit card, please complete the
Secure Order Form. If you do not wish to give me your card details but pay SECURELY by Paypal, please use this Order Form. There is also a secure Paypal Shopping Cart lower down the page. I am happy to accept a personal cheque in your currency, but I do incur a commission for this. The cost of Probates per cheque is the equivalent of £ 16 (please use the exchange rate calculator below) BUT there is a commission of £ 5 per order, not probate, for these types of orders. A credit card or Paypal is therefore much cheaper. Once I have acknowledged your order, this cannot be cancelled as I pay for the probates prior to their receipt. Nor is there any refund available as the Probate Office retain all fees for their time taken to search.
