I'm currently in the process of ordering supporting documents for the FBR through descent from my Grandfather, who was married three times, and wondering if you think i'll need to supply all three of these marriage certificates, along with a divorce certificate and two death certificates for his wives?
His first marriage was to my mothers, mother, to whom he then divorced.
Might it be possible for me to just send these two papers to confirm my mothers heritage?
I don't want to be ordering certificates that are not relevant to to my application as of course this will become expensive and they will never be used. He also, being the male of the relationships, will never have changed his name throughout his life, therefore these certificates will have no bearing on his name.
How many certificates do you think i can get away with sending for the application?
Any help will be appreciated, thank you xxx
Damocov is correct, It is only your line of decent so the others are irrelevant, you could contact the Embassy to make sure (I could be wrong) but I'm confident Damocov is right!

For reference I applied for FBR to the London embassy on the 1st November (received and signed for on the 2nd), so fingers crossed I'll be hearing from them about the end of January.
My Sister resident in Scotland applied to the Edinburgh consulate about 4 weeks earlier so it should be interesting to see the relative speeds...
Glad you could join us, Good luck!
I would definitely expect it within the 6 month time frame, hopefully sooner, as said mine was 4 months and I did send it 6 weeks (approx) after the 'Brexit' vote, which is the time it took me to gather documents and such so would guess it would have taken people in my situation the same amount of time.

I will definitely keep my fingers and toes crossed for you, I would expect it this side of the New Year for certain.
All I am going to Liverpool tomorrow to use the 'Passport Express' service to get my Irish Passport. I will (if you wish) keep you updated on how long it takes (I believe it should only be 10 working days??)
