2. Unsure as they have both died and left very little information. When they retired, they returned to Jamaica leaving me here.
3. Yes, I have my only and orignal passport. A photo of when I was 10 approx
4. I don't think so.
5. It has an entry certification and a stamp from an immigration officer at London Airport.
I have never been married. I have had 3 children. One is 35, 19 and 17 years old. All born here in London. Oh, yes I do have indefinite leave to remain with a Biometric residence permit(I think that whats it is called). I am just wondering what I need to do to get my British status officially without any tests etc. I needed a passport to travel. I had just lost my father and wanted to travel over to Jamaica for the funeral but without a current passport(British or Jamaican), I was unable to attend. I believed that by obtaining my indefinite leave to remain biometric residence card, It was be straightforward to gain my citizenship. Then apply for a Britsh passport. Now it has all become so confusing.
Thank you for your help on this matter.
It says Type of permit: settlement, and then Remaks: No time limit.
And yes, I did have to prove that I have been here for 14 years(sorry early I said 13).
