I have went back to Durham Council and have asked them to check these again, as they have told me that these were not connected to my family.

I will let you know outcome asap

I would think you would have to go to or contact the South Tyneside registry office to get information for certifcates registered in the South Shields district.  Durham records office may have parish records for all over what was Co. Durham but the registry office only covers what is today Co. Durham and not parts that are now Tyne and Wear.

Since the other children on the 1901 census apart from the eldest were all born Scotland have you also rechecked the Scottish registration index for her birth in 1901 instead of 1902?
A Scottish death certificate in 1963 will give her exact date of birth though I don't think that early it will give the place.
Sometimes people did not use their full name when they married (both names where they have two names). Does Elizabeth's death registration confirm she had only one Christian name?

There is nothing at Registry House in Edinburgh for a birth between 1901and 1904.

On her death certificate it only states one christian name and age at death 61 (Feb 1963) ( no birth dates or place of birth are shown on scottish death certificates)

The Scottish death certificate I have does show date of birth, but it is a later date than 1963. I know English death certificates show date of birth from 1969 onwards, but I didn't know when Scottish certificates began showing date of birth - however they are usually more detailed and informative than English certificates, so I thought they might have started the practice sooner than the English GRO did.
