It looks good. 

I still dont understand the male names thing and maybe this is one of those QI "Nobody knows"?

Edward Scholfield May have been an alias for Charles Parkin.  Reverted back to Parkin when he wanted to claim a pension?
currently concentrating on NUTCHER & MARSHALL families, Hampshire.

Perhaps one of the names was an alias. Re the birth that Rosie found for Charles Friend Parkin it seems a bit of a coincidence that his mmn was ... Schofield.

There is a very detailed tree on Ancestry for Charles Friend Parkin  which is well worth a look. He would appear to have married Mary Emma Wilford in 1919. Was he simply living with Margaret in 1939? (his wife is easy to find in 1939 - she married again in 1948).

Dent (Haltwhistle and Sacriston), Bell and Jetson (Haltwhistle), Postle, Ward, Longstaff, Purvis, Manners, Parnaby and Hardy (Co. Durham), Kennedy and McRobert (Banffshire), Reid(Bathgate), Watson (Wemyss), Graham (Libberton), Sandilands (Carmichael), Munro (Dingwall)

The reference to Charles Friend Parkin's police record in 1922 - Apparently he stole 10 bicycles in Doncaster, 9 in Wakefield, 3 in Retford and odd ones at Selby, Denaby, Edlington, Thorne & other places - 31 in all.  I think he was definitely using an alias in 1939 hence the different names

Its fascinates me that some person involved with the 1939 register has worked this all out or seems to have worked this out hence the modifications.

As the NHS was using the register after WW2 it would probably have been amended then.
