I've just been sent a new cheque book.

Looking at the current one I note that the first stub is dated October 2011!

I somehow don't think that I will ever get to sign the last cheque im the new one.

Just sign a few then post them to me (I'll pm my address to you) will soon dispose of them for you!

I haven't written a cheque for many years, and I doubt that I will ever write another one.

I still quite regularly include a cheque when sending birthday cards etc. to my close family in England and Ireland - much safer than sending real cash as only the named recipient can cash it in.

Same here. I go through a cheque book in around a year. Some bills I prefer to pay by cheque and it is easier than putting cash in cards.

I'm in the same boat as the FE, not having written a cheque for many years.

Aitchbee, we always use bank transfers to do the same.

Then I would need a book to list the 20 or so banking details. We send a card, we pop in a cheque unless the have asked for something specific.

Old Deuteronomy, I have used that method also on occasions, for larger amounts.

You can send family and friends money via Paypal for free.

Sending money to people online couldn'be easier - no need to keep written lists of account numbers, and it's far quicker than sending cheques.

Most children nowadays don't even know what a cheque is.

At the other end of the age-scale my brother in Ireland [aged 69] has never used or owned a computer or mobile phone!
