Northern Irish GRO certs to go up

Here's a family history friendly message for those like me with Northern Irish ancestry. For a long time already the highest charging GRO office in the United Kingdom, the office in Belfast is increasing the cost of a cert to £14 from £12 from January 1st. God forbid there should be any sort of harmony across the UK with the service...

I'm sorry the government thinks the good folk of Ulster are made of money. It's not as if the province is sharing a land border with Europe's fastest sinking economy and in serious risk of economic contagion or anything!
