She was re-registered in Sep 1932 & the GRO only goes up to 1918.

It appears to be a late entry, rather than a re-registered one - This is the one in 1932 -

Births Sep 1932 - Shaw Elsie B mmn Wheeler Holborn 1b 692

But she also appears here:

Yes, but only written on the bottom with nothing after the 1b. No sign of an actual registration at the time.
