    The 1939 Register has the following entry:

    Barbara died in January/February 1954 aged 25, GRO reference March quarter 1954 Birmingham 9c 148 and is buried in Witton Cemetery. So far so good, but

    Nellie Taylor's maiden name is indeed Edgley, but she was widowed in 1919. o_O

    So would I, but as the daughter is not related by blood there are a fair number of certificates on my to get list with higher priorities. If curiosity did get the better of me though I'm not exactly sure the certificate would give any clues.

    I suppose that it might name the father... but chances are, not. :(

    Probably no reason for the four year gap either. I wonder if the mother decided to hide the fact that her daughter was illegitimate by re-registering the birth, claiming she had realised she had given her married name instead of her maiden name in the original registration.

    The 1928 entry only appears as a handwritten addition at the foot of the page (from the page images at FreeBMD), which suggests that she wasn't registered then at all, only as a late registration 4 years later.

    Wonder if this is one of the reasons why mom would develop an attack of convenient amnesia when asked about her father's family? :rolleyes:

    Missed the handwritten additions on the 1928 registrations page on FMP until I read your post as they were off screen and there is nothing to give cause to scroll down to the bottom of the image

    I would agree with Bonzo that the mum didn't register the child as her hubbie Harry had died in 1918 and when she found herself pregnant ten years later it must have been a shock . there isn't any man on the 1939 just Nellie and Barbara who gives her birth as 13 Mar 1928
