1939 Register
« on: Monday 10 February 20 22:58 GMT (UK) »
I know that certain entries on the 1939 Register are blanked out because those people were deemed to be living, presumably at a certain point/date.  Can anyone tell me the approximate date where a person would be identified as living or already deceased?  Thanks

Actually, although I've read that link I suppose I'm still just a little confused.  I now understand how they are reviewing and "uncovering" information as the date of birth of person concerned makes them over 100 years old.  But a member of one family I'm looking at was born in 1922 and their details are showing.  I know they died some time ago.  I'm still interested to know at what point it is decided those people can appear.   I'm looking at certain people I know are now deceased but they were all born after 1920.  All of them (with the exception of the one born in 1922) are not showing.  He died before the others but I'm thinking there is a certain date involved here somewhere when the death triggers the entry being revealed.  I'm not sure if there is any way of discovering it though!

I've read that you can get a relative unredacted if you send a copy of their death certificate. But presumably you'd know if you'd done that for your 1922 one.

It occurs to me that they could automatically match up names and dates of birth which since the 1970s (I think) are given in the death register indexes with those in the 1939 register. But I've also heard that there are errors in the 1939 register DoBs, which might explain why some are missed.

Most of your questions should be answered from item 9 onwards:

Your 1922 entry could have been opened if they have managed to identify the appropriate death record. They are gradually opening more and more records.

To give you an idea about the cut off date.

The NHS kept the 1939 register up to date until 1991 so my father, who died in 1981, is visible but my mother, who died in 2005, isn't. I shall not bother sending her death cert. off as she was born January 1921 ;D

I think FindMyPast update monthly?
Ancestry update once per year.
