Indeed there shouldn't be a difficulty but whomsoever's in charge always manages to prove us wrong on that count.

According to 1911 census, Charles Bailey was married 3 years to his wife Johanna/Hanna Daly probably in the district of Kilmallock, Mitchelstown or Limerick. can anyone find the marriage record? Happy New Year!

I tried a few of the usual tricks but I'm not seeing sight nor sound of it.

In the '01 census Charles Bailey is listed as the stepson of Patrick Walsh so there may be some doubt about which surname he used for the marriage. I'll PM you a link to an article in the newspaper archives.

Not straightforward then! However, I also looked for the marriage record under her name without result. I even looked up her baptism record, sometimes the marriage details were annotated but not this time.

Have you checked the UK?
Also, did they have any children - check birth records for the names of the parents in case there's a difference.

thanks. Yes I did a quick check in the UK for the marriage. The children's birth records show parents' names as above.

I noticed one of the children's births was incorrectly indexed under Midleton even the record is clearly from Mitchelstown.

Yep, and mother's first name incorrectly recorded as Hanora instead of Johanna/Hanna.

GRO birth record has annotation "Registered on Statutory Declaration". What does mean? The birth was registered nearly 6 months late? What was the time period for registration and what was the fine if due?

3 months is the time frame. I think the amount of the fine changed over time though.

It depends on when. The time period varied and there was also a difference between ‘notification’ and registration. The various fees and fines would have changed over the years.

The Civil Registration Act, 2004 changed some of the rules about registering a birth. These changes took effect from 5th December 2005. That act replaced several older ones, the main ones being the Births and Deaths Registration Acts 1863 to 1996 and the Births and Deaths Registration Act (Ireland) 1880.

The main act under which the registration was established was an Act for the Registration of Births and Deaths in Ireland. [20 April 1863] 26 & 27 Vict. c.11.
See sections 30-35

On more than one visit to the GRO in Werburgh St I've seen 2 people sitting together searching different books. Would they both be paying a €20 fee for unlimited searches, or is that only payable by one person, if they're accompanied?

No, you can pay one fee of €20 and both search.
