Contact the register office directly

on 01522 782244

If you give them the name, the register district number, the register number and the entry number from the GRO index, they should be able to tell you exactly.

The entry number from the index for this time period is the exact entry.

GRO references mean nothing to the local offices as they use entirely different systems to index events.

The GRO reference numbers do not mean anything for historic entries.

However, recent entries (as this topic is) compiled on the GRO/Registration RON computer system where each entry has a unique number rather than a page containing 10 entries, match exactly.
