Historical cost of birth, death registrations?

On this bright new years day I thought I would look for the costs of registrations in the 1800 - 1911, well they do say that Google is your friend but today we are not on talking terms :mad:

It would appear that what ever I type in all I get is how much a certificate will cost me today :rolleyes:

My reason for wanting to know is that on a 1911 census for a relative it stated that they had had 18 children 9 living and 9 deceased, I however could only find 10 with 1 death. Upon searching for more information it was noted that the poor could not afford the costs of a double registration. SO just how much would it have cost per registration :'(
