I am looking for a birth record for Ellen Nash born 1872 in Battersea. I have a marriage cert for her listing her father as what looks like James Nash. Any help is appreciated.

If that 1893 marriage is the correct one then James' occupation was Plumber and Ellen's address was 18 Jubilee Cottages, Garratt Lane.

(Karen's tree on ancestry has spouse as Thomas Robert Jenkinson b1873)
