Welcome to rootschat, Rosewai.

This site will show the birth for Amelia, and confirm her mother's maiden name as de Baker (think you first have to register (for free) to search)

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/indexes_search.asp

What records do you have access to, and have you already got Amelia's birth certificate and her parents' marriage etc?

The marriage referred to previously in Southampton is this one:

Marriages September quarter 1903 
Rosina de Baker        Southampton    2c   65    
 Alfred Gadd        Southampton    2c   65

which is quite interesting as there is a marriage for an Albert Ernest Gadd in 1893 also (in London) so worth seeing if that is the same man and the first wife died?

This might be his death:

Deaths March quarter 1947 
Alfred E Gadd age  72    in  Southampton  6b   754

This site for probate/will/administration gives his widow as Rosina:

This looks like Michael's death:

Deaths September quarter 1970 
Michael Stanton born 29th February 1900 in Southampton   (6b   1717)

but a free search of the 1939 register has his birth year as 1899.

Thanks - yes that looks like them. I didnít know the de Baker part of the family so will look into that. Also will try to find more info on Alfred Gadd.

Regarding that 1893 marriage - think that is for an Alfred Ernest Gadd born about 1864 in Derby, a bank manager, who then lives in London, so you can ignore it.
