I'm confused with Jude's one..
the bit where it says about grandparents. I don't remember doing this before but we need details of the child grandparents, marriage, passport number, full name etc. where it says to fill it in thou doesn't seem to be enough space for all the details.
has anyone else done this recently and know what in talking about? It's for parents born after 1982?

Are you doing it online or paper?
I recall you have to give grandfathers name, occupation and any passport details. I guess it's to show UK heritage?

Il filled out the form. I think il have a look online see if there are any sort of examples to look at. If you remember doing it then its probably right, just a bit confusing the way they've worded it in the booklet

I've just had S's 1st passport back and completed the form online. I didn't complete the grandparent's section as I didn't need to. I think you only did if you needed additional proof of heritage. I obviously did the right thing as it came back quickly.

Ah, actually I was born before 82, so that could be why.

I saw that too when I was doing E's in february but thankfully as I was born in 1980 (H 1983) I didn't have to fill it in. I did wonder what is was all about though?
08/04/2013 at 17:07
Yeah that's why you didn't have to LWO, don't really know what difference it makes but I'm '84 born and so is H. Il just full in what they want

I'm just doing this now (born in '88). I'm filling it in online and there seems to be enough space on my computer? Then they print it off and post it to you to sign.

Ok ok maybe il do it online then

It says in the booklet to add an extra page which is what I did. I put: all 4 of Es grandparents current names, married name a, maiden names, dates of birth and places of birth and dates of marriage.No passport numbers as my dad was away, momsbis locked away and ILs don't have one. Es came back fine 6 days later.

IIRC I didn't put grandparents details in and I was born 1987. It came back fine within a couple of weeks.

Thanks LM. I'm going to do this today. So there was no other supporting documents to send regarding the grandparents? And you just sent photos and Es birth certificate?

I did E's the other day. I had to do the grandparents bit. I put full names, dob,place born and marriage dates. Didn't have to do passport numbers as both H andI have passports and I filled in our numbers earlier on the form. I just used an extra piece of paper for it and signer and dated it.
Annoyingly, if I'd been born two and a half hours earlier I wouldn't have had to have done it (born. In the very early hours of 83)..!

Yep - that was all I had - would take weeks for MIL to find their birth/marriage certs. Didn't even have my H's passport number as he was travelling at the time - literally just mine, but it came back very quickly. My best friend did the same, but only gave her moms details and she natrualised into the UK so you'd think hers would be a little complicated.
I phoned the helpline (to ask about omitting H's) and they said all they are needing to do is prove my nationality as E gets hers from me. By supplying my passport number and Mom/Dad details they can reconfirm what I told them when I applied for my own, and prove that both I and my parents were british.

The reason it is different is that children born of mother's born after 1982 aren't automatically entitled to British passport, the grandparents have to be British too. Putting it very simply.
Not sure on filling it in though because I was born a long time before 1982 ....
