Death registration annotation meaning?
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 15:39 BST (UK) »
This is the death registration of Thomas Laight. It looks as though the registrar was recording the informant’s surname as Laight, but crossed it out and wrote Standley (?). What I am puzzled by is what appears to be “14” written next to the correction, and the word “fourteen” at the right of the entry. Any suggestions what it may mean?

It is a simple numbered correction
