Perhaps she did not have to provide a birth certificate to get her passport

I think that she got it to see her son in Germany after the war.
I am trying to find out where family were in Slough or Stoke Poges before they moved to London before the 1901 census. Her mother has a very interesting time from what I can make of it.
Living on own means when granny became a dressmaker.

1891 in Battersea
Elizth Ethel Green, age 1, born Bucks Slough
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QZ3N-86Z

Parents Henry and Mary Ethel
Russells in the household, one should be granny

Age fits with a birth in Dec 1889, and a registration in the next quarter (March qtr 1890)
Perhaps that 1890 birth year you have is wrong.

I think I'd go with that one - born December 1889, registered March 1890.

The year that I wrote is wrong. Tiredness and slackness is my excuse ;)

I am quite excited about getting  the info from berth cert.
I am hoping that it wil give me a lead to more info.

It was Russell btw. One of three husbands.

Please come back when you get the certificate!

I have just got a facsimile of the cert.

Under the address of Henry it just says Stoke Green.
I have located a map that relates.

I have seen Henry as being a Trainer and I wonder, where would such a person
be employed who lived here ?
