My wife works in a Register office! The situation now for stillborn babies
is as follows.

If the baby takes just a single breath (or more) then a birth and a death
registration are completed as per anyone else.

If the baby never got to take a breath, then details are entered into a
Stillborn register. This is separate to the registers for B M and D, and to
her knowledge, is not accessible to the public for looking up.

Hi all,
This may be an impossible question, but......
What would have happened (or still does today) in the event of a
1. Registered as birth and/or death?
2. Not registered at all?
I'm guessing that it's hard to be registered as a death if the child was
never actually "born"; any opinions?
