Are you trying to chase who their father(s) were?  If you have the birth certs and they don't mention the father, then you could contact Herefordshire Archives to see if they have bastardy bonds for that time.  The archives might also hold school log books which might mention parents names

I doubt baptismal records will have more than birth certificates which I assume you have already since you have all the information needed to order them from the GRO. What further information are you after?
