Plodding my way through the website update, I have now reached the letter L in the Visitations pages. Progress is regrettably rather slow as I have to fit in any updates between normal work commitments but it's getting there.
Nothing to do with Cheshire Heraldry but I understand that in Scotland, Lyon Court updated their price list at the beginning of April (although their web site still shows last years pricing structure).
The new scale of fees is as set out below:
