Hi Pete,
until today (thanks) I've never known what the rules were wrt registering births, but I've seen dozens of December births registered in the next quarter, presumably January. Admittedly this birth was not in the Christmas week, but still a busy time for everyone especially new parents, maybe the weather was particularly bad that year ?. Assuming the birthdate on the 1939 Register is accurate within a few days (they're not always spot-on in my experience, or some families celebrate the wrong date !), that birth could have been registered almost anytime in January and still be within the 42 day limit.

Cheers, J
