Research into the birth date of patient Alice Oldfield, deceased 1990

Alice was originally a patient at Little Plumstead Hospital, before being transferred to Hales. On her original admittance in 1935, a clerical error led to her year of birth being recorded as 1879 and this was used as her date of birth for most of her life. The issue had been raised since at least 1984 and was not was resolved until 1987. This folder contains newspapers articles, copies of her admission papers, and birth certificates, and other papers used as research. There seems to have been some confusion with another, unrelated but older, Alice Oldfield when issuing the birth certificate used as evidence of this Alice's alleged age.
