This looks like a PDF copy from the GRO, and if so it will be taken from a return sent in by the local register office rather than an original register. I'm not sure exactly what the protocol was, but as there aren't any obvious errors or corrections in this extract, it looks as though the returns might have had to reproduce the numbers relating to changes, but not the incorrect details which had been changed/corrected.

Incidentally, the GRO have indexed this as Heeling Smith; Yorkshire BMD have it as Keeling Smith, which is what the extract shows.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Thanks for this Arthurk. Yes I saw there was discrepancy with the Heeling/Keeling name. I had to order from the GRO as Heeling Smith even though I knew it must be Keeling from other sources. But the death cert I have also now ordered and for that GRO have got it correct Keeling Smith same child.

Thanks for the points about the local register office  compared to original register - good points.

I did notice on the record it looks like the Smith name has been gone over in thicker pen both times just slightly.

Thanks again
