I've just been going through some of my Naval records, have hundreds of them, and often the date of birth does not tie up with the date of birth on a certificate or baptism entry, this is not just the year being out but also different days or months.
I know baptism entries can be incorrect.
I'm working on this family at the moment Stanley Herbert Jessep. GRO gives his birth registered 2nd Qtr 1896 - Baptism at Holy Trinity, Plymouth gives a date of birth of 19th March 1896 - that all fits. His Naval record gives a date of birth of 19th December 1895
