I have received my ceremony letter via email. I am so happy. My ceremony is on the 19th November. If I am lucky I could actually spend Christmas with my family.

Thanks again to everyone for all their advice and especially BritInParis you have been tremendously helpful.

Here is my timeline should it be helpful to anyone.

Good to hear.
I received my daughters certificate on Monday. I had to arrange for a courier to pick up all the documents with the certificate included.
Next stage is the passport.
Thanks again.

I have not been here in a very long time
So don't recall if I asked my question or not
here it goes
UK grandparent
served in the "Canadian army" with his father in 1915 1918
Mother born in Canada in 1931
1943 green cardholders in the USA
become citizens of the USA in June 1947 backdated to June 1943
Mother and grandparents British subjects under the 1914 citizen act
Mother is a minor child up until 1952 (age 21?)
1914 and 1948 do not lose their British subject even if the parent did
My mum marries my American born Dad in 1951(she is 19 years old)
1 Jan 1947 Canada citizen act Canada says at the time of my birth in the united states my family did not become citizens because they were not ordinary residence there
Note
between 1 Jan 1947 and June of 1947, my mum and grands are not citizens of any country? (stateless)
They were in fact stateless from 1 Jan 1947 and 1 Jan 1948 at least my grandfather was
My Mum however is a minor child and would have become a CUCK at age 21?
The UK or Canada should not have allowed them to be stateless at any point
the 1 Jan 1948 UK citizenship carried a foreword the minor child language
She married father as a minor child lost of citizenship but was restored later? (1951)
so two ways I am British by decent?
Note
1n 2016 we became citizens again of Canada as of our births
However, the UK would not recognize this operative at that time?

Hi infocat. A couple of your previous threads that might help

UK ancestry or a Citizen?
What was my Mothers status?
