GRONI raises fees and introduces four new services

The cost of birth, marriage and death certificates from the General Register Office of Northern Ireland (GRONI) has increased this week.

Previously £14, individual certificates will now cost £15.

GRONI's announcement insists that the fees cover only identifiable costs, leaving no profit.

At the same time as the increase, four new services have been introduced:

  • short death certificates that exclude the cause of death (£15)
  • notification of registration events to government departments and other organisations
  • introduction of commemorative certificates (£40)
  • recording in the Northern Ireland registration records of registration events that have occurred abroad (£40).
