Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: 1939 register abbreviation

It looks like 84 to me.

2 lines further down on the original image is another Beatrice Robertshaw. I wonder if someone mixed the two up when adding a note. Do you know anything about the second one?

Family History Beginners Board / Birth and Death records pre civil registration

This is pre Q3 1837.

I'm wondering if anyone has come across any records of birth (other than date in baptism records) or death in their searches.

I know there was no requirement to register before 1837, but I'm curious if any churches or workhouses etc issued any form of documentation for births or deaths (other than baptisms and burials).

If it has that little curved arrow in the bottom left corner, it is a shortcut to the file. It has no information (other than where to link to) in it. Deleteing it should only delete the shortcut not the original file.

Not sure if this helps or not but the 1939 register was taken on the 29th September 1939.

Do you know who the two redacted people are? Or could they be related to Annie?

If he was the eldest child, was he born "a bit too soon" after his parents wedding?

My Great Aunt always claimed to be a year younger than she was for this reason. When official documents were needed (ie passport etc) the real age had to be used.
