Notary Public, Colchester


Jayne Griffiths-Scott


The Foreign,  Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) has confirmed that it expects to run a “business as usual” Apostille service during the November lockdown.

For documents which require both an Apostille and legalisation at one of the embassies, please be aware that some embassies are simply not operating and their doors remain closed.  Others are taking far longer than usual to process documents and delays are to be expected.  Please contact me for further information on specific jurisdictions.  

I will post further updates here, as and when they are received.

As this challenging time, I remain available to deal with client queries.  Personal meetings will take place at a safe distance.   Please note that I have temporarily suspended my mobile service.

I am a Colchester based Notary Public,  but I also  provide my services as a Notary Public to clients in Sudbury, Clacton, Harwich, Ipswich and many other places throughout Essex and Suffolk.

I appreciate that clients often wish to move matters forward quickly and as an independent Notary Public, I am best placed to adopt a flexible approach to meet my clients’ needs for Notarial Services.

I can offer appointments at short notice, and outside of normal office hours.  Same day appointments are often available.  

My service is professional but I also hope that clients will find me friendly and approachable.  Click on the link below and take a look at my visit to Graham Norton’s famous red chair to get to know me a little before we meet!


For client convenience, payment may be made by credit or debit card if preferred and at no extra charge.

Below is a sample of the feedback I have received from clients.  You can also check out my google reviews.

“Thank you for your extremely efficient, prompt and professional service.  We cannot recommend you highly enough based upon the 5 star service we received”

“From start to finish you were friendly and professional.  You answered your own telephone and saw us the same day – we just wanted to say thank you, for taking the stress out of this process and making us feel we were in safe hands.”

“Your mobile service saved us so much time and trouble.  We were so relieved to learn that you provide your services as a Notary in Sudbury.”

“I needed urgent notary services and Jayne helped me calmly and professionally throughout the process.  Jayne genuinely wants to help and I would strongly recommend Jayne and her Colchester Notary Services.”

“We googled “Notary Colchester” and saw you the same day – thank you for everything you have done for us!”

“We rang you on the Wednesday and were delighted with your “can do” attitude.  We saw you the very same day in the comfort of our own home and you totally put us at our ease.  Your service is exceptional and we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone!”

“As a business it is really important to us that we can act quickly and not have to wait days for an appointment.  The fact that you respond to our needs immediately and conduct business so professionally means that we will return to you time after time.”

“For us as first time buyers of a property abroad it was imperative that we trusted the person we were dealing with.  You immediately made us feel that we were in very safe hands indeed.  You answered all of our questions and raised several of your own which we were very grateful for.  Our solicitor in Spain also commented upon your professionalism.  Simply a great service – thank you.”

“Many, many thanks. You have made my life so much easier!”
