Hi Reggie
Sorry I have just been able to read the information you posted.
My request however was to view the full page as I believe I may have been a twin but I cannot see the actual page as it won't scroll down past the surname Barrell...?

Only one entry for Barrett/Strange

If you were a twin, the time of your birth would be on your birth cert

Yours is the only Barrett birth recorded in Lewes in 1967.

Debra, using Ancestry there is no ref to there being a twin, another child two years after you which I expect you know.

If your actual birth certificate has a time on it you may have been a twin....as there is no other births recorded it would not have been a live birth.

You cannot see birth certs online, if you do not have a copy you would need to purchase one through GRO...£9.25

It is only twin birth certs that have a time on, singleton births don't. Hence if your cert had a time on it, it would indicate a twin birth.

as has been mentioned above, there doesn't appear to be a second birth registered, not a 'live' birth anyway.

why do you think you were a twin?
