Hello all

Hope you're well.

I have a question that needs clearing up. I've googled search but not find anything concrete.

What happens if you send a letter with signed delivery but the person doesn't accept the letter and thus not signing it.

So does the person give the letter back to the postman and it returns to the post office it was sent from?

any help would be appreciated.

cheers

Goes to Belfast I believe where the PO will open it and try to find out where to return it. Otherwise will get destroyed.

It goes to Belfast where they will open it to try and find sender, I guess it gets destroyed if they can't find sender

so it doesnt get held at a post office for 20 days waiting if someone will claim it before getting sent to belfast?
also it gets sent to belfast even if its sent in London?

If you have the receipt and ring Royal Mail I presume you can get it back

If it's been refused there's no point the PO keeping it any longer. They only keep items if they can't delver them for some reason. In this case they have delivered and been told that the addressee doesn't want it, so they'll passed it along the through the system to Belfast right away.
