Therefore, we are obliged to seek identification from anyone requesting a Certificate. If you are seeking a Certificate on somebody else’s behalf, we are required to seek written confirmation that you have authority to collect on their behalf.

Please download the form by clicking the link on the appropriate page as listed above. Once completed, these forms together with photographic identification can be handed in or emailed to the sacristy ( and we can organise same for you.

Please note the information as provided by you on the Request Forms will be used to draft the Certificate and, once this Certificate has issued to you, this document will be destroyed/shredded.
