Thank You.secret.simon wrote: ↑Sun Nov 10, 2019 11:56 amTransferring the certificate from one council to another can take a while, as the certificate will need to be returned to the Home Office, who will then pass it to your local council. The Home Office contact detail should be in their letter to you.
It may be much faster to arrange the ceremony with the Milton Keynes local authority and travel down for the day.

I checked the Milton Keynes Council citizenship ceremony page; they have an online system to book for ceremony and the online booking system verifies my details i.e. I'm due to attend the ceremony by 21st Jan.
Not really pleased with this admin error made by HO.
I have decided not to rush for it, rather than wait and see how this plays out.I was informed that your certificate was inadvertently sent to Milton Keynes Registration Service instead of Hackney Registration Service. Now that this issue has been brought to the attention of the Citizenship Support Team, they will be arranging for a certificate transfer from Milton Keynes to Hackney and will also issue a ceremony extension so that you will not lose out on the time given (90 days) to partake in a citizenship ceremony.
