Oh you're a good detective, well spotted. It seems that the Tolhursts needed to learn how to fill forms out correctly . I wonder what else will be found on them, so interesting.

I noticed that Daisy Maria and her brother George ( he died at Loos) were baptised on the same day 12th December 1894 , OH but now I've just noticed he was b 1895, oh this is getting silly, or have I got George's birth date wrong,

I think they had up to 6 weeks to register a birth (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), looking at the other DOBs on the baptism image I think it's possible that George's DOB is 22 Nov 1894 which would make a 1895 Jan- Feb-Mar Q registration quite possible.

Yes, six weeks, so they may have waited until after Christmas.

22nd November birth would need to be registered by 2nd January - so cutting it very close to get in for the next quarter but possible (that said I'm more likely to believe the baptism date than the birth certificate date - if there is a doubt then check the date of registration compared to the date of birth, my great grandfather had his birth certificate being a week out as his mother altered it rather than pay a fine, if it is the 42 days your ancestor may have done the same thing)
