You have the details for her birth, to get a copy you need to apply to the GRO  11.

I'm intrigued by the fact that the parents married in Newcastle (1944) and their daughter was born over 240 miles away in Hitchin.

Was Edward's job one that required moving about?

Ah, so that explains that then.

If you already know who Carole's parents are, what are you expecting the birth certificate to tell you?

Do you know what her adopted name is or are you hoping her birth certificate will tell you that?

I don't know what information is added to the original BC when a child is adopted if any.

It is wanted by niece said Carole.
Carole is the sister of her father.
I'm not sure what she expects it to show her.
Her father was my cousin.
