In some parishes the confirmations were carried out every year, and in some small parishes it was every few years, and in them we find the information of individuals and their age, in large or major parishes you would find the confirmations were written in a single book, and in small parishes they were footnotes on the christening record. In some parishes these were not required. It is very important to investigate these records to see if the children died at a small age.
