Sy Scholfield quotes birth notice (no time given): "BONHAM CARTER .--On May 26, 1966, at The Royal Northern Hospital, to Elena, wife of Raymond Bonham Carter--a daughter." (Times, 27 May 1996, p. 2).
Because the notice appeared in the newspaper the day after her birth it is likely she was born in the morning.
