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

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.
Glad I'm not the only one who got confused by this then

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.
