Marriage Elsie M. Forrest & Thomas Hodgkis 1925 Bolton Registry Office or Registrar attended. Elsie's surname is Forrest on Lancashire BMD index. They married either at registry office or at a Non-Conformist or R.C. chapel, not in C. of E.
11 Hodgkis births registered in Farnworth 1926-1945 with mother's maiden name Forester.

Marriage isn't on LANOPC (Lancashire Online Parish Clerks website). There are 2 baptisms at Methodist church in Farnworth which may be of 2 of the children. I'm not naming them in case they are alive. Perhaps marriage was in a Methodist chapel.
Yes these are them! Their child is my late father John born 1932?died 2004. The others must be his older siblings
Thank you 😊

John Hodgkiss birth registered Farnworth sub district 1932 . It's on Lancashire BMD www.lancashirebmd.org.uk which is where I found registrations of 10 other Hodgkiss births with mother's maiden name Forester. Possibly death of one as an infant in 1943.
Names + dates of birth  of John Hodgkiss and some of his siblings should be on 1939 Register but may be redacted (blacked out) as they may have been alive when the Register was released for public viewing a decade ago.

The 2 baptisms at a Methodist chapel from Lancashire Online Parish Clerks don't match the birth registrations of any of John's possible siblings. Parents of those 2 were Thomas and Nelly and they lived in Kearsley.

To start with you need to know who her father is, he should be named on her marriage

Marriage Dec qtr 1883 
BRYAN    Sarah Jane       
FORRESTER    Isaac       
Whitchurch, S.    6a   1487   

FindMyPast have the marriage image, it names her father as John Bryan

This is possibly her in 1871 with her father John & mother Martha

To progress backwards from Sarah Jane who married Isaac ...
Parents as per 1871 - John & Martha.

1871 has the following children for John & Martha all born Whitchurch
Sarah J Bryan c1862
Mary c1864
Martha c 1866
John E c1870
You need to use the GRO index   https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp to locate their birth registrations.  It will show mothers maiden name against the entry - that is Martha's surname.  It is good to practice  ;D

Then use freebmd to search for a marriage for a Martha .... to a John
