I have a Certified Copy of an Entry of Birth relating to my mother. It was "supplied at the Special Fee of 6d Applcable in Certain Statutory Cases". The purpose in this case was relating to Elementary Education.
The certificate was issued in Augus 1932 and it says mum's DoB was July 1918, making her 14 years old. Why would this certificate be required if she was about to leave, or had already left, fulltime education?
