It would appear that she was illegitimate.

There is a marriage of a Lily Forrester q4 1905, Mt Drayton, Vol 6a Page 1499. She married Frederick Clews.

Kenneth born 1910, his birth record shows his mother's surname as Forrester.

The date of the baptism of 25 Apr 1905 is not the same as her birth date. No birth date recorded on the baptism.

Have you found Elsie on the 1939 register which will confirm her date of birth?

This would mean Elsie was born before her mother Lilly got married to this Frederick clews? Could he also be the father? Hmmm is there any info of Lilly and Frederick parents in their marriage details ? Also how did my Elsie end up moving from Shropshire to Lancashire ?

Thank you 😊

I think this is the right one.

I was going to post this earlier ::)

Here is 1911 index from Family Search

Elsie May Owens 6 yrs b Walkden, Lancs

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWT1-KMB

On another index, she is Elsie May Forrester

There is a likely birth though in Lancashire but Martha, mother is born Whitchurch. :-\
