    I think there are a few things that need clarifying. First, does all of this refer to England and Wales? Scotland and Ireland have different records.



    What document is this in? For example, a...

    Yes, I think it is. What I think I can see in the image is consistent with the birth registration. But I'm glad someone could make out her name in the 1939 register - I'm not sure I'd have got it.
