Thank you, Every One.

This gentleman died in the last 10 day's, with no living relatives, in a Residential Home.
We were hoping to come up with something to say about his life,at his funeral ie his parents, where he was born.However the date of birth he gave, and his name,do not tally with where he is said to be born.

NHS 474 103 8289

It is possible that his mother was an evacuee who later returned home with the baby/young child, who would later say he was born in the place he remembered as a young child but his birth was registered elsewhere and the original NHS no (format XXXX nnn) would have been issued where he was born/his mother lIving at that time.
OR maybe vice versa, he was born, registered, then evacuated and remained there and thought that was where he was born.

By chance, I was looking at my medical record  today and found that my current NHS number is not the one that I remember from previously.  A new/more modern number must have been issued, as in this case.

I believe it happened when they computerised the records in 1991 and stopped using the 1939 Register  derive data.
