    3. From <https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp>: "GRO has been piloting a service providing PDF copies of historical birth and death records. From the 16th February 2019 PDF’s have become a permanent service. "Applications for PDF’s cost £7, must be made online and include a GRO index reference. England and Wales records which are available to order in PDF format include: "Births: 1837–1918 "Deaths: 1837–1957 "Note: A PDF is not a certificate and has no “evidential” value, therefore a paper certified copy [certificate] is required for official purposes, e.g. applying for a passport, driving licence or where required to give notice of marriage. "Change in Fees "From 16th February 2019 GRO have increased the price of certificates and made changes to delivery options. Extra charges will apply if you do not order certificates online or include a GRO index reference (where available). "Multilingual Standard Forms: These are now available with applications for certificates (or separately with a certificate of no impediment) if needed for use in EU countries. Please see our ’Most customers want to know’ section for more information."
