Dear General Register Office,
I am making this FOI request on the birth certificate numbers
a) Are the numbers on our birth certificates unique to the people named on them?
b) does anyone in Great Britain/United kingdom share the same birth certificate numbers?
c) wouldnt it allow room for fraud if numbers were shared?
