If you want to be certain I would order her birth certificate and search out her baptism, if applicable.
These two pieces of information together will help confirm.

I have several relatives that were baptised before they were born!
Obviously religion was rated higher than civic duty and
the threat of a fine for not registering a birth within the time limit didn't prevent
a little "white lie" around the date of birth!

Also when people applied for jobs, or looked for pensions, they often became older or younger
the easiest way to remember this change to your DoB was to just change the year.

After many years I did find grans Birth cert.  1866.  On any info later she born 1870.

My grandmother was born 1866.  On her marriage cert she was four years younger.  A little white lie.  ;)

If you have 'Paint' on your computer it is very easy to reduce the file size.
