I can't find it either. crying As a side note: have you noticed that his father is actually George William, not George Walter?

i did notice that Ros yes but everything else matched

I had another one where Charles Shorney was listed as boarder but in fact he was probably the head :)

Since his baptism record shows the actual date of birth you can place an order to the GRO with specific information about who you are looking for. They will not charge you if they cannot find the right person.

1911 Huntspill Road Bridgwater. Brickyard labourer. RG14, 14307

Wife Mabel 25 Sons Reginald Bowden & Herbert, 3 and 11 months.

Married Mabel Bowden Bridgwater RD 1908.

Reginald's birth doesn't appear to be registered either. Mabel is Bowden in 1901.

Herbert, the son is registered : 

GRO Reference: 1910  J Quarter in BRIDGWATER  Volume 05C  Page 307

Looks like he married Myfanwy E.M. Dean in 1933

Marriages Dec 1933  
Dean Myfanwy E M Giles Axbridge 5c  1188 

In 1939 Herbert G Giles ( born 3 May 1910 ) and Myfanwy ( born 7 Jan 1914 ) are at 68a Abingdon Street, Burnham on Sea, Somerset. He is an Auxilliary Postman and Night Telephonist.  She is a Shop Assistant. 

The next line is a closed record but then there is an Edward G Giles born 9 June 1937.

The 1911 census has Reginald born in Williton, so this is probably his birth reg ( no entry in Mother's maiden name column ):

GRO Reference: 1908  J Quarter in WILLITON  Volume 05C  Page 241
