Question National Grid Transco and BG Plc Shares Certificates

Whilst doing a major sort out of paperwork, I have found 2 ordinary share certificates - 1 for National Grid Transco and BG Plc. As far as I am aware, I don't receive dividends from them and I wonder if BG Plc wasn't taken over by National Grid Transco. Does anyone know if the certificates are still worth anything or do I bin them?

Both these companies have been through various transformations.

Rather than asking here, you would do better to contact the registrars -
Equiniti for BG Group plc
Capita for National Grid plc

Default Both are probably still valid share cert's

THe various demergers that the old British Gas has gone through are quite complicated, but as an ex-employee of BG plc, I can confirm that both companies are still in existence - so your share certificates should still be valid.

Previous advice is correct though - contact the registrars of both companies to confirm - and claim arrears of divideneds if not paid!!.
