Thanks, Rosie, I will look into it. Not sure why she would be in the Birmingham area but from the age it seems like it's most likely to be her.

I am fairly sure this is Edward in 1871 - living in Everton

Robert Saddler   59
Mary Saddler   52
Edward Saddler   26 - unmarried
Geo Saddler   13

all places of birth match the 1881 census and the 1861 though Edward's birth year seemms variable the others are constistent

edit - soory BumbleB I missed your post

this is perhaps an obvious question but just wanted to check that on Robert's birth certificate his mother is named as Mary FORMERLY Burke.

If they were not actually married Robert could be registered in his fathers name and his mother just named as Mary Burke

Thank you so much for the helpful responses!

I would need to check the birth certificate. I assumed from the 1881 census which had Edward down as a widower that they were married but could this be wrong?

UPDATE: had a look at the birth certificate and it does indeed say 'Mary Sadler, formerly Burke', yet I have had absolutely no luck finding anything like a marriage record. Did people every try to cover up illegitimacy on birth certificates at that time by feigning marriage?

Thank you!
