Can I plead the 5th on that as I am not sure I am allowed to say something like the number 1,939 linked with another word like Register!

I also notice that Kate and Richard had children over a long period of time - must have been strange for their first child William (born in 1902) to suddenly have a baby Sister when he was 22. I haven't checked but it would have been possible for him to have had children who then had an Aunt younger than them!!

It is easy enough to deduce a date of birth using the free index by narrowing down the year, then month and day until you get a postive result.

Good point - of course, that is what I did (thanks for the 'get out of jail free' card!!).

Strange that you did it for Richard since he died in 1970 and his d-o-b is given in the GRO death index.

I just happened to have been using the FindMyPast 1939 Register at the time, so I was there on the screen to input name etc.
