Lost Twin of Stanley Radford Barker b.1911 Sparkhill
« on: Wednesday 04 July 18 15:57 BST (UK) »
Stanley Radford Barker b.911 is on 1911 census. Census also shows James age 1 month crossed out. Cannot find birth or death registration, is it possible they were twins? Do any parish records exist for Sparkhill, Birmingham? Any help appreciated , regards ansellsales

Probably just an error.

Is he part of a family unit?
What are the numbers for years wed/ number of kids etc?

Yes it does say 2 children born,but one has died,one still alive,so looks like James was the one that Rosie found,and mum must have thought he ought to be included on the census. The enumerator probably crossed him out as no longer being alive.
