It may be worth mentioning that pic. 1 was originally an ambrotype making it 1850's-early 60's.
It was then copied in possibly the 1870's.
She looks young so maybe someone born around 1835-45.

If you want to collect BMD certs. as keepsakes then it is going to be very expensive.
If you want them for research then there are other avenues to pursue first.
Some have already been mentioned.
The general rule is to get as much info FOC before buying anything.
I would be cautious of believing on-line trees including Ancestry unless there is proof as many are wrong. Just because there are lots of trees on there with the same information doesn't make them right. It just means they've all been copied from the same (wrong) original source.
3 free sites commonly used are IGI, FreeReg & this site.
We can't supply certs. but can guide you in the right direction if needed so you don't have to buy them unless necessary.

1870's-80's. That jacket belongs to both decades.

Agree with Carol but I rather think this is 1850's - possibly early 60's.

John Clemson appears to be in lodgings in 1851 aged 37 a widower (if it's him) but no Hassell children.
Where are they?

Looking at Maureen's Hassell family Joseph died in 1843 aged 44 address given just as Aston so looks like the same family as per 1841.
There were 2 more brothers, William Baptised same time as Joseph (1837) & John b. 1835 who don't appear in 1841 so possibly died.
1841: Lozells Lane:
Joseph 42/Labourer Not born in County
Jane/32 ditto
Joseph/3
MaryHenry/6m.
To give an idea of where they lived this is an 1866 map.
In 1841 it was pretty much just fields & a few scattered houses.

They last they knew was being informed their father had drowned in the River Mersey.
Do any of them know roughly when this happened?
Where they still in care at the time?
