If the date of birth was not clear when the transcritions were done, then it's entirelty possible, it was misread. |
It's my understanding that the trancscriptions were done column by column (because there were likely to be a fair few people still alive), so there was no context for the transcribers to make an assessment.
My mother died 20 years ago but she was only 5 when the Register was compiled, so her details are redacted. She was born in one county, got married in another and died in a 3rd. I could get her un-redacted if I care to submit the relevant certs to FMP, but have chosen not to do so.
