Hi Phil,

On each index search costs 1 credit per page of up to 25 results (should your search produce more than 25 results, then each subsequent page of up to 25 results is a further 1 credit). Then each census page that you view (or download) costs 5 credits. This is the same costing of credits as searching and viewing birth, marriage or death certificates, or pages from the OPRs.

Note that ScotlandsPeople is now offline for the next few days. It is due back online on Monday 26th September.

All the best,
