Ancestral Visa Docuements Required

I see that they ask for my grandparents marriage cert too. do I really need this? Surely the above docs will prove my ancestral ties?

Just to let you know that my husband was recently granted his Ancestry visa (Jan 2011), and he produced his, his father's and grandfather's birth certificates (all unabridged), but no marriage certificates (other than his and mine, to show dependency). He had no problems at all getting the visa.
Hopefully it will work the same for you?

Thanks for all the support in the past. An assciate of mine is applying for his Ancestry visa and has hit, what may be a documentation snag.
Aside from the other supporting documentation he has the following:
- Grandfather's original UK unabridged birth certificate
- Father's original South African abridged birth certificate
- His own original unabridged South African birth certificate
Is there a chance this documentation will be accepted by UKBA where his father's birth certificate is abridged? Unfortunately his father was born in 1912 and South African Home Affairs have said that it may take up to a year to trace the original documentation and re-issue an unabridged birth certificate where records are that old.
Thanks in advance
