Does anyone know what S Quarter means ? Summer Spring. No confusion at all :)
Edit September More likely, but then it would be a third!

No it would not be the third on the GRO website  ;D

If you look at other entries they have M /J/S & D against them

When I was looking at electoral rolls for the 1920's they appeared to be done twice a year in the Spring and Autumn so S is probably Spring.

Otherwise if they are done four times a year it would be Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. 

As far as I am aware, today in the UK they are done once a year.  Anything more would probably be too time consuming and expensive.
