Double birth entry Gerard Benbow Liverpool?
« on: Thursday 31 January 19 08:58 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone offer any suggestions with this...

Gerard Benbow was my grandfather's half brother. We know he was born in Liverpool and some of my aunt's still remember him - they say he was born in 1925. His mother's maiden name was McArdle.

There are 2 handwritten entries at the bottom of the page for JAS quarter, 1925, p82:

Benbow Gerard, McArdle, Liverpool S., 8B See D39 (all crossed out)
Benbow Gerard, McArdle, Liverpool S., 8B see P39
I've included the image as it's difficult to be sure with the volume and page info for the 2nd entry

However typed up in the OND quarter, 1939, p63 is the following:
Benbow Gerard, McArdle, Liverpool S., 8B 360
Again I've included an image.

Now I appreciate the 1939 entry might be for someone else but the name, mother's maiden name and location seem too much of a coincidence. Could the birth have not been recorded in 1925 and then for some reason done in 1939 with a back entry to 1925?

Ideas welcome.

Michael.

"('see D39') does not follow this format it is possible that it is a Late Entry. Late Entries mean that the registration of the event was delayed, e.g. parents did not attend the Register Office to record a birth but the birth was registered much later when the child was about to begin work, or an Inquest after a death prevented the immediate issuing of a death certificate. "

When did Gerard Benbow die? Or When did Gerard Benbow start working?

Possibly something came up, like an apprenticeship or the 1939 register (WW2) needed to be filled in and his parents hadn't registered his birth in the past.

"See D39" presumably means see the entry in the December quarter of 1939.
