    I haven't complained and wasn't meant to come across as I am. I was checking that they had received it due to how fast it was 6 mo ths ago. I don't mind waiting or resending if it's lost

    I got a email reply the other day. My application sent just before mothers day is still being processed and they currently have a back log but they are processing it.

    Just in case anyone is wondering where theres is.

    My grandads took 1 month from start to finish in November. They must of had a lot of interest this year.

    My two sets came one day after the other in late August. Sent off for them in January and March respectively. Now I've got to go again for another of my great uncles service records!!

    Sent off for two sets of service records in February 2019...... one for great uncle, other for grandad.

    Both £30 cheques cashed on same day (end May)....... received great uncles records early July but still haven't received anything for grandad.

    1. How long should I wait before chasing
    2. How should I chase.... phone / email etc?
