Births Jun 1930
Woodford Audrey J. Butcher Christchurch __ see J'37 PLabott

This entry appears to be a late entry referring to the following
Births 1937 Jun: Woodford, Audrey J,Butcher,Christchurch,2b,1112

Births Jun 1937
Woodford Audrey J. Butcher Christchurch 2b 1112 Lepache

The above transcription represents what is in the GRO index but it is referred to by the following entry
Births 1930 Jun: Woodford,Audrey J,Butcher,Christchurch,__,see J'37

Email the GRO for advice.

But I think it points to the late 1937 entry which has a volume and page.

Looks as though the birth was before the marriage then recorded in 1837 then added in 1930 with a ref to 1937 entry.

That's the marriage I have, also...
BUTCHER, AUDREY JOAN - GRO Reference: 1930 J Quarter in FORDINGBRIDGE Volume 02B Page 1063
I think she changed her name to Jean when she had an illegitimate child in 1950 who was adopted.
Susan M WoodfordRegistration Date Apr 1950Registration Quarter Apr-May-JunRegistration district TrowbridgeInferred County WiltshireMother's Maiden Name WoodfordVolume Number 7cPage number 709
Place of birth is Bradford on Avon Maternity Hospital. Date 7th April 1950 Mothers name is Audrey Jean Woodford, Susan became Jane Kirby.
The story so far is that I am trying to help Susan find her maternal family and I am 99% sure that I have found them but for whatever reason they are not accepting it because of the Joan / Jean names.
