Dear General Register Office,
I have three questions.
Why is the Certificate Of Birth format and information printed in red/pink?
And why is the format and printed information on the Certified true copy of an entry of birth black?
Also why does a superintendent registrar or registrar sign the certificate of birth in gold and the certified true copy of an entry of birth in black
