Hi,
I have just received a copy of the birth certificate for a Mary Gwendoline Davey born 21st Feb 1933 at 2 Upper Shoreham Road, Kingston by Sea from GRO. As expected there is no father but there is a registrars note saying"Previously registered on the 25th February 1933 at entry no 191". This certificate shows a registration date of the 7th July 1933, much later.
I would like to know what the earlier entry said and details so I can order a copy.
The district is Steyning, Shoreham and her mother was Marjorie Fanny Davey who went on later to marry my grand-father in Chiddingfold, Surrey.
Any help much appreciated ...its been a long standing family mystery

Both entries are on Free BMD website.  One registered Mar 1933 and one Jun 1933.

Do you know which one you applied for?

Mar one is Volume 2b Page 394

Jun one is Vol 2b Page 375

Both Steyning district.

I didn't think to look on FreeBDM

That's a little strange the 02b 394 is the cert registered 7th July (June) ...yet your post suggests March ...the 02b 375 should be earlier (Mar) surely?

Yes I see what you mean with the numbers but can't offer any explanations for it all  :(

You don't really want to pay for 2 lots of the same thing.  The names on the index are exactly the same. 

Maybe mum registered it one time and someone else the second  :-\

Hi
Thank you for your help and assistance.

The certificate that I received, apparently 02b/394, has the 'occupier' of the address down as registering the birth ...I wonder if the Mother did it first time around and included the father's name and it was registered a second time to effectively have him removed!!

Is there a way I could get to review the actual birth register myself?

Thanks Colin

Does it have a name for the occupier?  I suspect the mother registered it herself as well.

Both birth registrations on the index show exactly the same names and surnames so I don't think a father would be involved.  If it was registered under his surname then one of the surnames on the index would be different. 

Anyway hope you manage to resolve it.
