Query on Birth registration

Discussion in 'England & Wales BMD registers' started by familyfind, Mar 15, 2020.

    Looking at entries in the GRO indexes, can anyone tell me what 'Occasional Copy: A ' indicates after a birth registration?
    It has happened with twins Hugh and Reginald Alston born in 1877. Is the fact they were twins something to do with this? (except it hasn't happened on any other twins in my family)
    Both of these boys died in 1884, I presume from illness, as I haven't ordered a death certificate for either yet.

    I can only see it against Reginald's name. a Google search for Occasional Copy A brings attention to Lost Cousins newsletter of December 2016. You could try looking at that.

    Thank you for the link to LostCousins. So it looks like something was changed on Reginalds's first entry but not sure what. As these two twins died so young, I think I will leave buying the certificates until I win the lottery!
