How does someone in 20th century England end up with two death records?
I have a chap whose birth record gives his forenames as Ernest Edwin, but his marriage has him as William. Then on the 1939 register he was Ernest E again, and his wife's name matches the marriage record. But he has two death records, both of which confirm the exact DoB given on the 1939 reg and match the quarter of his birth record, and are both in the same district and quarter, one as Ernest Edwin and one as William Edward. In fact they are on the same page of the register. There's no explanatory note on the GRO record.
I'm not asking you to check my working, there's no doubt about any of the records, but can anyone explain how this double death entry could have happened? He was just an normal guy, not a secret agent!
