    Query on GRO Birth Entry

    I've just looked up a birth entry on the GRO indexes and was wondering if anyone could explain what "Occasional Copy: A: means.

    It would usually indicate that there was a later correction made to the original entry - the certificate should normally show what it was.

    Thank you Anthony, unfortunately the connection isn't close enough to warrant me buying a certificate so it will remain for ever a mystery as far as I am concerned.
