Thanks for responses.
Will the RCE be noted on the birth entry? Or on a separate document?

It is a separate document but the button to download it is at the top of the same page as the birth certificate

Thank you Wendy.
I thought a RCE would also be noted in the birth register? And there is nothing in the registers. Is it possible that the birth certificates will have more information?

As far as I am aware there is no more information on the certificate than what's in the register books the only difference is the RCE number to the left hand side of the child's name which is on the books but not the certificate  You could try asking Old Scotland where they get there information as I notice they only offer a transcript

"Original entries in the Statutory Registers of Births, Deaths and Marriages cannot be altered but sometimes an error is noted or additional information comes to light. These amendments are recorded in a separate register - the Register of Corrected Entries (RCE)"

2 examples here: http://www.rootschat.com/links/01mm4/

I have included 2 which are different from the examples on the link.

(1) 1856 no RCE but an annotation on the Birth cert.
(2) 1867 an annotation of the RCE without the stamp on the 2nd example on the link.

Thank you Wendy for your help.
I think my last hope of getting any information is to try Old Scotland.
