Hi
Just a quick question, we need to apply for a passport for A and got the form today. It says because me and hubby were born after 1982 we need to put details of both our mothers and fathers parents including where they were born and when then got married etc. So our grandparents details. All my grandparents bar one are dead and the same for hubby so we have no idea when they were married or where they were born. Does anyone know what we can do to get around this?? x

It says: parents details for applicants under 16 which is where I have written mine and hubbys details. Then under that it says: if both parents names above were born after 1982 we will also need the full name town country dob and date of marriage of your grandparents.

:unsure:

Its the baby's grandparents they are asking details for (your parents & hubby's parents).

I would read that as meaning the applicant's grandparents, so your parents.

Oh thats a bit worrying. Hubby doesn't speak to his Dad, hopefully his mum will know all the answers. Never knew you had to give details like that.

I think I had a wobble over that one before realising it was OK as I was born in 81. I got a bit confused about Mr TC having an Irish passport at some point.

I rung up the passport office and asked the same question when I applied for O's passport. Its your parents (baby's grandparents) it needs the details of.

Another question: her grandparents are my mum and my step dad. I don't have anything to do with my real dad so is it ok to put my step dads details down??

They'll want biological family info not step parents.

If you dont have anything to do with your biological dad you can leave that section blank. Im guessing they would be used to it as some people dont know there fathers.

I had to do this and you have to put your's and your hubby's parents which is the child's grandparents.

If you get all the details then they will help you the post office if you do the check and send.
My hubby's parents were easy as it went:

Name, DOB, Place of birth (for both), then Date of marriage

Then my parents were harder as my dad was in prison and my mum is deceased. So had to put some thing like this:

Name, DOB, Place of birth, Date of marriage: unknown

Then next to my mum's name had had to put deceased and I didn't know where my dad was born and I couldn't get hold of him so had to put that as unknown.

I think that was what I did. The post office lady added a bit more but I can't remember what it was (was nearly 2 years ago) so I recommend doing the check and send. Hope that helps in some way.

ETA: I also had to put divorced next to my parent's names.
