Red Cross searches - has anyone had one completed?

Hello,

I've been in touch with the Red Cross to request a search on my grandfather. However, after two months the only contact I received was an e-mail asking for my credit card details.

Now, being security conscious, I am very reticent to e-mail my card details, prefering instead to give them on a secure website. So, I returned an e-mail asking if I could pay through a website, and have had no reply since.

As such I was wondering if anyone else has had dealings with the Red Cross, and what payment methods you used.

Many thanks

I received my father's details from the red cross, but I'm hanged if i can remember how I gave my card details, I will have a rummage and see if i can turn it up, dont hold your breath though, all I can say is it went through without problem and I received their certificate showing where he was captured and held.

I have dealt with The BRC Archives on many occasions but I always send a cheque donation with every request and I have never experienced a problem. My enquires have taken anything from a week to three weeks depending on how much work they have. I have found them most reliable.
