Scottish Side - Bit of help needed

Hey all,

Due to the Coronavirus, I have come back to my family tree after a few years away and the mystery of my paternal grandmother has caught my attention again.

Her name on the death certificate was Jean Susan Saunders and this date of death was confirmed by her son (my father) along with the supporting info on the death certificate such as husband's name and the family home address etc which are all spot on.

The cert has been uploaded and its on the attached : https://ibb.co/LRdbR7n

Now, the mystery is the first name as she goes by Jean however her officially name was Susan (according to my father) so I am trying to find out as much as I can about her and feel that I have obtained the correct birth certificate for her which is here : https://ibb.co/ZmbFj2k

I guess I am hoping that someone else can tell me that this is same person and if so, at least give me some ideas of extra area to research to pursue, along with trying to figure out why she dropped the Scouller name and adopted the first name Jean. It would seem that she has a sister called Jeanie as well who died fairly young so perhaps this could be why she took on her sisters name (clutching at straws here).

Be great is anyone was kind enough to have a quick look at this and offer some advice. The name of Jean Susan Saunders father was Andrew Bell and they were from Troon in Ayrshire.

A bit of an odd puzzle but just need to know I am looking at the birth and death of the same person really.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Thanks all

Scott Saunders
