It also has ages at death for earlier registrations.

They are currently running a trial for PDF copies for some birth & deaths for 6.  They are ideal for family history if you don't want them mounted on the certificate background and you download them rather than them coming snail mail.  This trial has run for quite a while, I suspect it may continue ....

This may be way off the mark but worth looking at  :)

In 1861 Eunice Ward is a servant in the registration district of Rotherham.

There is a marriage of a John Skidmore -

q3 1865, Rotherham
Vol 9c Page 620
On the same page is an Emma Ward.

Wonder if details were mistranscribed and Emma should be Eunice - Just a thought.

Good to see we had the same thoughts Rosie  :)

Having looked at the image the bride's father's name is James with occupation Joiner, which matches the 1851 for Eunice Ward. Equally the signature of the bride does look like Eunice and not Emma.

I saw that marriage but couldn't work out how you'd get Emma from Eunice, I even looked at the transcript on freeBMD but that is just a list of names. 
If she's in Rotherham as a servant and you can see her signature and it looks like Eunice that's great thank you!
The certificates as a PDF looks like a really good idea, it'll save money and come quicker!

It took me a while as I went back to look at the certificate which I had previously discounted  ;D

Wow, that so looks like Emma if you're not looking for Eunice.  I am sure it's Eunice especially if you compare the a in Ward to the supposed a of Emma they look nothing alike.

Thank you very much both of you
