Fiche are still currently 2GBP per fiche and you have to multiply that
by the number of fiche in a set (ie the number of fiche it took to do
a single register), then add postage.
Somerset RO have a handling charge of 9GBP as well.
The best people to ask are Devon Record Office who will be able to
advise any enquirer as to what the exact charges are for the parish
and period of interest, especially when there are variables from
parish to parish.
The fiche, I believe, are usually copies of existing fiche so there
will be some loss of quality depending on how good the original is and
how clear and well kept the original register was.
