Birth registrations 14 years apart.
« on: Monday 05 April 21 14:37 BST (UK) »
Freebmd,
Eileen B Gallagher mmn Cuthbert.
June qtr 1915, Grimsby.
Sept qtr 1929 Grimsby.

The parents married Dec qtr 1915 Grimsby.

GRO.index The 1915 birth isn't there but the 1929 one is.

I have Eileen in 1939 after her marriage and her birthdate is 21 May 1915.

It's a bit confusing.

It is showing that an amendment was done to it in 1929,  the ref to S29 against the first one indicates that .  It is probably to do with the parents marriage

If you look at the 1915 FreeBMD entry it clearly states "See S'29" = September quarter 1929.  If you click on the 1915 "spectacles" then you can see the page from which FreeBMD made their transcription.

There is a birth registration in 1915!

June qtr 1915
Grimsby Reg District     Vol 7a, page 1193
Cuthbert, Eileen B    Mother's maiden name: -

The "-" usually indicates an illegitimate birth.
If the parents subsequently married, the birth could be re-registered.
This followed the Legitimacy Act, 1926.

It will be a re-registration due to the later marriage of the parents.

There will probably be an original entry in 1915 indexed under the mother's surname.

It's very confusing isn't it. I hope get yours sorted..
With this one it didn't help that the mother / bride was also illegitimate,  as was her own mother.  Thankfully it was in Lincolnshire,  this  family moved to Wales.
It could have been worse if they were all Jones.
