Definition of the word CHILD

Melissa Shirley made this Freedom of Information request to General Register Office

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear General Register Office,

On the birth certificate it states the word CHILD.

As you are aware that there is a distinction between the words CHILD and ADULT.

Can you tell me if there is a birth certificate that states the word ADULT.

If there is no birth certificate that states the word ADULT, can you explain why.

Also can you confirm that you conduct business and in business what the meaning of a CHILD COMPANY or PARENT COMPANY is in relation to the corporate function of your business and the administration of birth certificates.

Yours faithfully,

M. Shirley
