Obtaining British citizenship is only possible where nationality is passed from one generation only. This means that you can only become British by decent where your immediate parent is British. So unfortunately, you will not be able to claim British ancestry through your grandparent.
It is important to note however there may be other routes available to you if you have other family members or ancestors who are British and born in the UK.
Applications for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) as a UK Ancestry visa holder can be put forward via the UKBA Premium Service Centresï¿½ (PSC) same day visa service and you will receive a decision within 24 hours from the Premium Service Centres (PSC) of the Home Office.
To make an application under the UK Ancestry Visa category you must be 17 years old and above at the time in which the application for the visa would be made.
Switching into the UK Ancestry Visa from another visa category is not permitted. You are only permitted to get the UK Ancestry Visa initially from your country of nationality.
