I called the HMPO for couple times to push my application and accelerate the process as over 10 days they didn't get any information from HO or Town hall that i already attended the ceremony. Dx delivery didn't notified me at all about the devilry date till i got the information from the HMPO, so is better to keep tracking the progress of your application with HMPO. finally happy day was come on the 23/02/19. wish you all the best ans the same end
