As we have said previously - the marriage certificate is a must in this case. It will simply be guesswork otherwise. At least a father's name and occupation should cut down the possibilities on the census records (hopefully to only 1 if we are lucky!!).

Emelton found four possible births for you,until you get the marriage cert and find out who his father was I'm afraid you're not going to get anywhere,apart from risking barking up the wrong tree.

I'm not sure that the word begins with an M.
Look at the name Moreton just below it,it has much more of a 'flowery' M.

I thought of Wakefield at first.......but the later letters don't fit.

I wasn't happy that Lisa Faulkner had become Michael Buerk.
BUT..... it's a slightly different format and Michael keeps showing up and asking questions.
Seen today with Neil Fraser in the office,something Lisa never did.

Possibly more suited to newcomers,rather than us oldies  ;D

From the official GRO indexes.If she was born late in March,then her birth may not have been registered until early April,ie appearing in the June 1/4.
