Which town are we talking about, please?

Highgate in London? or West Hill, in Devon, or Somerset, or Aberdeen?

If you look up the birth on FreeBMD or on Genes it will tell you the registration district.

Because where the convent/home was situated it came under Islington borough.

Its main agency and birth file record holders are off Ladbrook Grove W10.

The area is divided between three London boroughs: Haringey in the north, Camden in the south and west, and Islington in the south and east.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Highgate

So no surprised that part of Highgate comes under Islington for BMD registrations
