I think I'm right in saying that code NR230 refers to someone who changed their name by Deed Poll.

Please see https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=738645.msg5848183#msg5848183

NR230 does seem to be the code for someone who has changed their name (but not after marriage in the case of a woman).  I can't find a Deed Poll announcement for Hilda in the London Gazette, so perhaps she simply adopted the surname Grimshaw, and this was subsequently noted on the 1939 register having come to light through other documentation?

Possible childrens births appear to be Grimshaw with mmn Oldham - Barnsley RD which ties in with adjustment area code on 1939 register.

Do you have any of the childrens birth certificates as they would give a fathers name.

The youngest one of those three has an alternative surname if you look them up on FreeBMD.

He has two mother's maiden names as well, the others only have Oldham. It does look like Hilda wasn't married to Mr Grimshaw but used his surname. A bit unusual at the time not to marry, but maybe they weren't free to do so.
