I apologise if this cvered elsewhere, but I have found a female relative on the 39 register, but it appears the info is a s the 31 census (DoBs etc) Also, what does MIC and DPL mean please?

I don't understand your reference to the 1931 census - that census was destroyed by fire and no longer exists.  Columns 7 and 8 of the 1939 Register record each person's date of birth.

'DPL' is the district code for Luton, there are no codes that start with "M" so you would need to give a context to be able to guess what it might be in reference to.  Many of the codes remain known only to the government officials who updated the records.

Leonard wasn't the father. Only the mother Margaret ORSON formerly McLOUGHLIN is named on the birth cert.

I know his full birth name would just like a certificate.

You appear to have a family tree on Ancestry and already have a copy of the original birth certificate  ???

Marriage records in Queensland are closed for 75 years from the date of marriage.

I thought that was a different person,  Herbert and Ellen Bertha are together in 1939 with their children.

1911 census for the family

The 1921 census will be released early next year and the only other record you may find is an electoral register after he qualified.

If he married then your first step is to get a copy of his marriage cert to find his father's name and occupation so that you can confirm any births/census that you find.

A family tree suggests that Minnie died in Scotland.  This is the indexing, I haven't looked at the death cert.

MEWETT, Minnie
AVERY, Minnie
HUNT, Minnie

Aged 77
   
1964
685/1 16
Haymarket

Minnie may not have been around when Herbert was tried in 1927, she is not with him in 1911.  For Minnie to be charged someone would have to find out and dob her in.  It really depends on how long they had been apart by 1919.  It is unlikely that a person would be charged with bigamy if seven years had passed and they had no knowledge that a spouse was still living.  Clearly Herbert knew that Minnie was still living if he didn't use that argument.

I cannot see a newspaper report, but it would be interesting to know how Herbert was found out.
