London Birth Records for 1888


New member
Want to know where i can look or get somebody to look up a Birth from 1888 in London. I have conflicting information from family about my Grandmothers name.
I believe it to be Martha Eliza STOW but others say Martha Elizabeth STOW. Any suggestions please. ?
I'm guessing now.

Qld. marriage
Martha Eliza Stow
Event date: 25/12/1911
Event type: Marriage registration
Registration details: 1912/B/11171
Spouse: Frederick Charles Williams
Not all records are fully filed in so it's a bit pot luck.

The 1888 birth should have the full date. If you decide to order from GRO then ask for a .pdf rather than have a paper certificate posted.


1. Details contained on a full birth certificate include:
• Name, date and place of birth.
• Father's name (if given at time of registration), place of birth and occupation.
• Mother's name, place of birth, maiden surname and, after 1984, occupation.
Please note that registrations made before 1969 do not include details of the parents’ place
of birth and mother’s occupation.
