FreeBMD list him under both surnames - Bayliss and Edmonds-Bayliss
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.
He/she who never made a mistake, never made anything.

Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY

The new GRO index and the old printed one have been compiled using different indexing rules  particularly around how they list children born to unmarried parents (as this one appears to be), so different results are to be expected.
