Query re Registering Birth & subsequent Death in Hospital ? (General)

Hi Jeff,

Maybe not much help but, for what it's worth, my brother was born in 1952 and died one day later. He was born at home but was transfered to the Dilke where he died. My father registered both the birth and death a couple of days later. So I think it probably was the parents responsibility to do it. Whether it was obligatory in the 50's I don't know.

One other thing, for years I was unable to find any information about my brother until I came across his burial record. At first I ignored it as I didn't believe it could be him as the name was different but it was and, it turns out, I had misunderstood, many years previously, what my Mother had told me and his name was not what I thought it was. Is it possible the name of the twin was not what your BIL thinks it was? I found my brother's burial record by searching for any infants who had been buried around that time without using a name search.
