Odd

The Baptism for Florence Carey is 1875, yet the birth is 1876......

Can't see marriage or death.

and no trace of marriage for her parents??


EDIT Just seen Brummiejans post!

Just to add - the Drath baptism found by Andrew is 100% right as apart from the unusual name the occ. matches for father.
Have you sent a correction Andrew?
Sorry for the distraction! Will leave to prevent others making the same error.
