UK & Europe

The service I received was first class. Not only is the certificate beautiful, but it arrived within a couple of days. It was a much easier process than any other place I had contacted. I highly recommend Scottish Certificates.

John, Dundee, June 2019

I was very happy with your services. A quick turn around, and the documents satisfied HMPO's requirements as advertised. I would not hesitate to use Scottish Certificates again.

Anna, Hertfordshire, December 2018

I would like to compliment Scottish Certificates on their friendly and efficient service. Long may it last!

Arlene, Isle of Man, December 2018

I found the experience of ordering a replacement birth certificate very straightforward and I received the certificate very swiftly.

Andy, London, December 2018

I applied online on the Friday afternoon for a copy of my birth certificate using the Priority Service. The process was very quick and easy.

Arnold, Aberdeen, November 2018

The service I received was excellent in the first degree. This was the first time I have used the service and found it to be fast and efficient. I shall certainly inform family and friends.

Derek, Alva, September 2018

This is the second time I have used your service and on both occasions you have provided an excellent service.

William, Fraserburgh, September 2018

I am very impressed with your service. Painless, efficient and professional. What more can you ask for?

Catherine, Harwich, August 2018

I had never used this service before and was amazed how promptly my request was dealt with. I have told colleagues about the service and how easy it was to use. I also appreciated being kept in the loop about expected delivery.

Anne, Falkirk, August 2018

I had ordered a replacement certificate previously so knew that ordering one for my son would be straight forward too. This time I requested a Priority Order as he required his certificate for starting his new job (without it he would not be able to commence work). I ordered the replacement certificate on Tuesday and received it the following day by post. Very straight forward to do and all of the information was accurate.

Rose-Marie, Kirkcaldy, August 2018

When I moved to Slovenia about 9 years ago I lost some of my documents. Getting a copy then was a nightmare.

I needed my birth certificate and used your services, fully expecting the same difficulties. A quick online search, application and credit card payment was all that was required and a beautiful copy arrived 7 days later.

John, Slovenia, May 2018

I used this service recently for my family tree. It was fast and reasonably priced.

Diana, Edinburgh, April 2018

Australia & New Zealand

We couldn't find our son’s original birth certificate. We have since moved back to Australia, our country of origin. I couldn’t believe how simple and efficient the process and service was from filling in the form online to receiving the certificate. Thank you!

Lynne, Queensland, Australia, May 2018

We couldn't find our sons original birth certificate who was born on Stornoway in the Western Isles. We have since moved back to our country of origin Australia. I couldn’t believe how simple and efficient the process and service was from filling in the form online to receiving the certificate. Thank you!

Jodie, Australia, January 2018

The Scottish Certificates service was very efficient. I ordered and received my certificate within ten days from Scotland to Australia without any fuss or bother. They communicated several times via email to let me know when it had left, etc.

Karen, Queensland, Australia, December 2017

I emigrated to Australia and required a copy of my Birth Certificate to support a visa application. Scottish Certificates made the process extremely easy online and after answering a few questions and submitting payment, the replacement certificate arrived within two weeks.

Sandra, Australia, February, 2016

I needed my replacement birth certificate urgently in New Zealand as was applying for residency. Fast, efficient and user friendly service.

Andy, Christchurch, New Zealand, February, 2016

I would have to say that the service provided was First Class, prompt and probably better than expected considering that Clackmannanshire is the smallest county with the longest name in the country. I was most impressed and would definitely use the service again if required.

Don, Australia, January, 2016

Thank You to Clackmannanshire Council for their fantastically wonderful service. We were in a panic over the need to urgently obtain a replacement Birth Certificate, found your service on the internet, filled in a simple on-line form of relevant details and were totally astounded to receive such a beautifully presented certificate in Australia in just over a week.

Rick, Victoria, Australia, February, 2015

Recently my mother decided to retire and needed to obtain her birth certificate so that this process can be facilitated in Australia. I wish to thank you for your very prompt service in providing this for her. After ordering the certificate online (a very easy to use process) I was delighted to find the certificate in my mail not long afterwards.

Correna, Adelaide, Australia, February, 2015

I received my grandmother's Birth certificate today and it was wonderful news and a wee bit exciting to finally place her in our family tree. Without your services we would not have found out this information. I thank you kindly for your help.

Tarea, Queensland, Australia, October 2013

North America

I am now living in Canada and needed my children’s birth certificates for my application for permanent residency. I contacted Scottish Certificates and applied using limited details on the information required. Both the certificates were sent to me by post within a week of applying which was an amazing service.

The service and follow up support was excellent and well worth the money spent on getting my new certificates. Thanks to everyone for their service.

John, Canada, January 2018

I used your service to locate my grandparent's birth certificates. I did not have exact birth dates. The staff could not have been more helpful. They narrowed down the possible matches and with a little more digging, were able to provide copies of both certificates. I'm sending them to family members as keepsakes. Thanks for your help.

Mary Ann, Chicago, USA, January 2018

The office of Cindy Forster, MPP, Ontario, Canada had a request from a constituent for a Marriage Certificate. I ordered online and within ten days it had arrived in Canada. We received the follow up emails and confirmation that it had been sent to this office and this assisted me in letting the constituent know what was happening with the request. Such customer service is simply not seen these days on many levels in Canada. On behalf of the constituent and Cindy Forster, MPP, job well done and keep up the good work.

Mike, Canada, December 2017

Thank you for helping me receive a copy of my birth certificate - your service was quick and very easy to use!

RH, Texas, USA, October, 2017


Thank you most sincerely. I was amazed at how quickly you sent my records.

Cynthia, USA, February, 2016


Amazing service. Good value. My son lost his birth certificate and this was so easy. We now live in Canada and it would have been a pain in the neck to get it any other way. Would recommend it to anyone.

Jennifer, Canada, February, 2016


I just had to drop you a line to say how pleased I am with the service. I was distraught thinking I didn’t have my birth certificate and it would cause immigration problems. I was worried I would have to fly to Scotland to sort this out, instead I received a replacement sent to Las Vegas for a few pounds.

Richard, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, July 2015

Middle East

I found the site very easy to navigate around and clear on how to pay; the payment process itself was very smooth and the response time very good.

Tim, Doha, Qatar, November, 2016

I used the website to order a copy of my marriage certificate (somehow I lost the original). The process was fast and easy to follow, and I got the copy in no time.

Tal, Israel, November, 2016

South East Asia

Thank you very much for such fantastic service. This is very much appreciated.

I will recommend your service for any other expats we hear are looking for replacement certificates.

Roger, Hong Kong, October 2016

South Africa

I was delighted with the fast response when I requested a replacement birth certificate. I sent the request around 8 a.m. South Africa time and a little over two hours later I received a reply that the replacement was already in the post. That's what I call Scottish efficiency - but I may just be biased.

Mary, South Africa, July 2017
