I'm in need of some help in moving a ceiling light. I'm not a qualified house electrician, but I am a retired electronics engineer, so I understand the precautions.

I thought it would be a simple enough job to disconnect the old fitting and extend the wiring to the new position. However on examination it looks like a non-standard wiring installation. In this two-way lighting circuit with just one light fitting there is no ceiling rose either on the ceiling or in the loft. The single bulb light fitting has two 'neutral wires' to one terminal and one 'live' to the other and a single earth wire. This is all original wiring from the time the house was built sometime in the ’60’s. There aren’t any safety issues with the house wiring, it's been tested and certified on numerous occasions in the recent past after work done by professionals. Can anyone please help understand this wiring arrangement?
