Taking the leap from Marriage to birth certificate

Hi all, I hope you're all doing great.

I'm currently trying to acquire a copy of my Grandmother's birth certificate... I'm pretty new to this whole 'science' and could use a bit of a head's up.

Using 'findmypast', I've managed to find record entries for her marriage and her death, but making the leap 'backwards' to her birth is a whole other ballgame, mainly due to the holes in my knowledge, and even then, if I have managed to find a record that kinda looks about right, I have no way to corroborate that I'm looking at the right person.

Would anyone mind offering a few general pointers as to how this process is done. Thanks. All the best
