Thank you both for your quick response.

Is it common that mistakes were made when recording entries?
For example - Patrick Rocks death is recorded on his headstone as 1915 at the age of 67years old. That makes his birth C.1848.

However, parish records state he was born 1845.

Does this also happen in records? Perhaps the number 5 and 8 were similar when they were noted??
