HELP! GRO Index mappings
« on: Monday 19 April 04 15:20 BST (UK) »
I have trouble!  It could be costly!

I think I have found my gggrandmother's birth but I can't read the entry properly.  It isn't on Freebmd, I guess because it is on the tatty end of the page.

The entry reads:-

1846 Sept
ROBINSON, Grace - Conway - XXIII or XVII 343

But on this website:-

Neither fits for the Conway district.  Is it common for the reference to be variable, if so how common?
