    Sorry, I couldn't see where to type!
    Can anyone understand this please? Rose was born on Feb 4 and baptised on 15 March according to the form but I don't understand what is down the side.
    Thanks.

    I think it says she was baptised at home, presumably on 15th March, and that there was further ceremony at the church on 23rd April. In the Church of England this would be a private baptism followed by reception into the church.

    Thank you. This was definitely in a an RC church but that makes sense..
    Perhaps she was poorly, so baptised at home, then a further ceremony in church when she was better. I have had this for years and wondered!
