Dorrie,so is it possible that I was born somewhere else earlier in 1941, abroad say.
Trying to get my head around this.
How do I proceed about finding out from here, thanks Brionne.

The law is that a birth must be registered in the district in which it took place, so you can't have been born somewhere else.

 Birth could be earlier in the same year than the registration shows.

Parents are allowed 42 days to register a birth, if not they could  be fined, a friend of mine's father had a different birth date from his actual birth because he we registered late, parents obviously lied, only a few days but no one found out till he had died.

You must have been registered where you were born, your birth cert must be right

A penalty not exceeding £2 was introduced in Section 39 of the 1874 Registration of Births & Deaths Act, for the non-registration of a birth (the wording of the Act is actually for “failing to give information concerning the birth…….. as required by the said Acts”). http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1874/88/pdfs/ukpga_18740088_en.pdf

Under the 1836 Registration Act, If the birth was not registered within forty-two days there was also a fee of two Shillings and Sixpence entitlement for the Superintendent Registrar, and five shillings for the registrar, Section XXII. http://www.rootschat.com/links/0mvp/

I can't find any information about people being fined for non-registration. I don't think there would be many, how would they be found out? The possibility of a fine was probably put in the act to encourage registration.
The current fine for non-registration would appear to be a maximum of £200 See https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/what_is_the_maximum_penalty_for
