There are two more possibles here (MMN wasn't added to the registers until mid-1911):

Births Jun 1909 (>99%)
WROUGHTON James Blackburn 8e 352
WROUGHTON Thomas Blackburn 8e 352

Looks as though the poor woman had two sets of twins in three years :eek:

I imagine these deaths may relate to the same family as the surname isn't all that common:

Deaths Sep 1909 (>99%)
WROUGHTON Mary 72 Blackburn 8e 197

Deaths Jun 1917 (>99%)
Wroughton Harold 15 Blackburn 8e 397

Deaths Mar 1919 (>99%)
Wroughton Edith 0 Blackburn 8e 629

This is the Harold who died in 1917

Births Mar 1902 (>99%)
WROUGHTON Harold Blackburn 8e 341

I meant that I couldn't find a birth for baby Edith who died aged 0.

This birth matches the death, but she wasn't born in Blackburn, and she's not a Wroughton, so she presumably isn't the child of your couple.

Pippa Hmmmm, hadnt thought of that, OC had hundreds of them lol..I bet she has some in Blackburn :)

Mary I cant find a birth for the baby Edith either, Ive looked on Ancestry and I still cant get into freeBMD (pest) It dosent sound like babe edith is one of mine.
Ive tried matching the mother up with the census on Ancestry but there all just down as Ediths except one who turned out to be Edith Ann, never mind lol.

I edited my earlier post because I found a birth for an Edith who matches up, but in the name of Holden.

Suppose Ill have to get the marriage cert to find out more about Edith Ada but I have a list of 23certs I need that are more closely related. Ah well I can wait.
