Section 6: Registration of still-births where parents not married

Enables the unmarried father of a still-born child to have his name included in the entry without the mother being required to be present. It also allows the Registrar General to authorise the re-registration of the still-birth of a child of unmarried parents where the mother disputes the details of the registration.
