Yes, yes, yes, but to the original question there was by 1827 (actually just up to civil registration in 1837 which is what 'I' expected the nit-pickers to jump on) that act did put up a standard format for PRs and not "might be one or 2 lines" as suggested. that doesn't change with the process of bringing that act into action on the ground (or in the vestry as is the probable case here).

Actually on the 28th July 1812 George III signed "An Act for the better regulating and preserving parish and other registers of Births, Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, in England
Just to pick one of my favorite nits, British sovereigns do *not* sign
Acts of Parliament, and never did.
Not to mention that George had been out of his mind for more than a
year by that date, and wasn't signing anything.
