British Consulate General versus British Embassy

A British consulate general is like a mini British embassy or satellite of the British embassy manned by fewer staff members and is headed by the Consul General.

Most British consulates general, but not all, will be able to provide most of the services given by an British Embassy but on the spot, at a local level, usually quickly and including, for example, consular assistance to British nationals who might be situated nearby and usually are able to help with such consular services like visa applications, lost, damaged or stolen passports, prison visiting, assistance with domestic matters such as births, deaths and marriages, etc.
