The puzzle centres around Michael (Cyril Michael) born 26 September 1937. There is a Birmingham death registration dated October 2003 for a Cyril Michael Oldham, dob 26 September 1937, plus a marriage as Cyril M Oldham in 1966, but there is no trace of any possible birth registration anywhere. Equally baffling is the annotation 19.10.59 ??? BIR. FreeBMD lists 2 Birmingham deaths and 1 marriage, none of which relate to Cyril Michael or anyone in his immediate family.
