standing orders running late.

I have a number of standing orders that are due to go out on the 1st and 2nd of the month, all with BOS and Lloyds. To date, none of them have gone. Is that just down to the bank holiday?
I choose the rooms that I live in with care,
The windows are small and the walls almost bare,
There's only one bed and there's only one prayer;
I listen all night for your step on the stair.

    As always, they will process all SOs (and DDs) scheduled for a non-working day on the next working day, i.e. tomorrow morning.

    Being retired, I forgot today was a 'non-working day'. Life can be soo hard.
    Thanks.

    Clue's in the name - Bank Holiday, although Fast Payments are still good to go and some of the sexy banks use these instead of trad DDs/SOs so will still pay out on w/ends and Bank Holidays.

    Whenever Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year's Day fall on a Saturday or Sunday, they'll be substitute Bank Holidays on the following working day(s)
    I consider myself to be a male feminist. Is that allowed?

    I've heard they do, but how do challenger banks pay out DDs on non-working days? I thought DDs, as a scheme operated by Bacs, follow the strict working day cycle.

    They don't. 

    It's SO only. Not DD.

    Yes.  They will all go out tomorrow as it was a bank holiday today.
