It would appear that Findmypast is updating the 1939 register as per email I got from them

1939 Register Update

To mark the 80th anniversary of the 1939 Register on 29 September, we have made over 79,000 closed records searchable for the first time. In the three years since the Register was first launched, Findmypast has matched millions of ‘closed records’ to multiple data sources to correctly confirm the date and location of death for individuals recorded. These new additions are currently exclusive to Findmypast, the official home of the 1939 Register.

Cannot be a bad thing!

They obviously still have a way to go. My mother, born 1921, died in 1999 and she is still redacted, yet her younger sister born 1924 and who died in 2010 has always been in the entry for the family.

My aunt was b1919 she is showing now, but then she would have been 100 this year she died in 2016. I noticed my father's DOB is wrong, he was registered in 1924, but for some reason the 1939 register has his YOB as 1927 :eek::eek::eek:
