Behind the scenes
Notes and references
- ↑ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chapter 25 (Shell Cottage) The group went to Shell Cottage same day as the Skirmish at Malfoy Manor which can be determined to have happened around March 31. Three days then went by and then at least a week went by, at which point, they decided to go to Gringotts. Then they spent a further few weeks there, which can only mean three weeks or more, before going to Gringotts on May 1 and then the Battle of Hogwarts took place on May 2. Therefore, they spend at least a month and a half at Shell Cottage starting from around this day
- ↑ Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Chapter 29 (Careers Advice) It happens the same week the school breaks up for the Easter holidays in April, but the day after Dumbledore fled Hogwarts. April was on the 7th in 1996, meaning it happens between Monday the 1st to Friday 5th April
