Re: Duplicate Birth Registration
It is also possible that the original birth was not registered at all in 1949 but they waited until after the marriage in 1950 and then registered the birth. In 1874 it was compulsory within 6 weeks. In 1953 there was a penalty if registration was not done within 6 weeks. I am not sure what the law was in 1949/50.
