Cannot find my own birth!!


New member
I have just got into genealogy, however I am stuck at the first hurdle. I cannot find a record of my own birth. Can any tell me why? Both parents have passed and I am not in contact with any other family who may be able to help. The strange thing is looking at my birth certificate the registration date is 7 months after my birth, and the office was Somerset house not Hereford where I grew up. Can anyone explain this?
