:) Excellent, so wonder why Rose H /Rosannah believed she was born 8th September 1916 in 1939 and at death?!

Although 'transcription' of Rosannah shows birth year as 1916 it's an error - look at original page.

 :) Birth/1939 or death?

PS sorry Groom did not spot your reply, so is it possible that Rose H was told she was born a year later, although looking at original 1939 it is 8/9/1915 not 1916, but 8/9/1916 at death?

UPDATE:
Today I received a Birth Certificate for Rose Hannah Webb which confirms her parents as Thomas James Webb (My grandfather) and Rose Hannah Webb formerly Askey, who was the informant and was present at the birth. DOB 8th Sept. 1915.
Also received today was a Marriage Cert. confirming marriage between Norman Ernest Wood, aged 46 years old (Previous marriage dissolved) and Rose Hannah Webb, aged 38 years old (Spinster) Fathers name Thomas James Webb, deceased. The marriage was at Erdington, Birmingham parish church on the 18th September 1954. One of the witnesses was a S. Askey whom I think to be her uncle, Samuel Askey.
I am now busy searching through electoral rolls for addresses and dates of death for Ernest and Rose and I will post anything I find. My thanks to everyone who has replied to my posts and please feel free to contribute further.

O.K. Here it is, the last piece of the puzzle. Today I received a death Cert. for Rosehannah which confirms she is the one I've been searching for.
Her date of birth on this cert. is 8th Sept 1916 but this is obviously a mistake made by the informant, who turned out to be her Aunt Lillian.
My thanks to everyone who contributed very good information and advice.

The only thing left unexplained is why no-one in the family, including my own mom, ever mentioned her and her brother and yet her full sister, my aunt Alice, who also never spoke of her, was visited on a regular basis.
Sadly there's no-one alive now whom I know and could possibly supply me with the answer.
Ah well, perhaps it's best the secret never comes out ;D
