I am having trouble finding a birth certificate for my great ,great uncle. He appears in the 1891 census but no birth record.
If anybody has any ideas or thoughts on this would be gratefully received.
Thanks Mark Summers

Whereabouts is he in 1891 - can you post the census.

Where does the census say he was born.

Who are the parents

Have you found him in later census

There are 8 George Summers born 1882 showing on the 1891 census (probably means he was actually born 1881)

He's not actually related to you. He's the son of your great great grandfather's 2nd partner.

Edwin, George and John were all born Allen to Hannah (Ann Maria) Hickman and Joseph Allen.

I don't see a marriage to William and they are gone in 1901.

William's first wife was Caroline Fletcher.
