I have given you the year, as I said you can play with the free search on FindMyPast. 
https://search.findmypast.co.uk/search-world-records/1939-register

If you put her name in and the year it brings 2 results for Manchester but only one Eliza.  Then try against Birthday different months ie 01. 02  Once you have the month you can do the same with the days.  It is how I work them out without a sub

Lovely tip - looks like the DOB there is  11/05/1885. If this is my lady, then a very possible birth match is an Edith Grace Ainscow, Jun 1885, Manchester

A bit gutted. I still have no idea if she's Eliza or kitty. Ah well

A George Pontin of Aberdare and the Glamorganshire Yeomanry (b c1892 according to military records) is brought to court by Blodwen Davies of Godreaman seeking maintenance for their son in 1915, so he may not be yours. There are two George Pontin(g)s in the Aberdare/Cynon Valley area b around 1892 and also some older/nearer the potential 1885 date for ELiza/Kitty

Might be an interesting line to trace
