Collection and Usage Attributes
If the death date field is null then the death date will be derived from the date of death description by finding the first instance of a date in the format of 'DD MONTH YYYY'. If this can be found then the date of death code will be set to 'T'. If a month name cannot be found then an error message will be written to the log file. If the date of death is not null, it may be formatted as dd/mm/yyyy, mm/yyyy or yyyy. It will be converted into date type as appropriate in date of death defaulting day to 1 and month to 1 where necessary.
