I have just had another case where the birth dates are wrong as to the year!:confused:
I have checked all the birth years and the location are correct - just the 1939 register is wrong!
So I wonder who supplied the answers to whoever compiled it
I sometimes wonder just how much of our information is correct o_O

The image Dave, I now realise I have erroneously put to much faith in the Register as I wrongly assumed it would have the correct DOB but this is definitely a wrong assumption to make!
I have even back tracked from death dates and the register year is 4 and 5 years adrift:mad:
Oh well just have to be more careful in future
