A Matilda and Florence HERBERT were buried July 2 1860 at Ruardean. This site’s transcriptions give their ages as 9 months – confirmed by the Ancestry image. However Glos BMD gives the ages as 2 months.

Then there is this,

Record_ID: 323457
Entry_Number: 5416
Year: 1864
Month: Nov
Day: 6
Surname: HERBERT

I’m not sure what this adds to the solution but there were obviously more George HERBERTs than at first appears.
