Possible Confusions

The UK Birth index lists his first-name order as George, Cyril (which was miss-spelt in transcript as Scyril), Matthew, but he appears to have been usually known as Cyril.

Subsequent marriage index lists the order as Cyril, G, M; and the death index just lists two initials in the order C, M.
