The birth record suggests that finding relatives may be tricky............

Because Irene's mother's maiden name was also Todd, it's likely that she wasn't married.

However, if you were to buy the certificate, then you would find out what her first name was. It's possible that you might be able to find her on the 1911 census, although as Reggie has pointed out, there is no guarentee especially if she had a common first name.

There is also a chance that Irene's mum later married. Finding and buying the MC ought to give her father's name if she knew it, which would help to identify the correct family in census.

As you are new to FH, English and Welsh certificates should be bought from the local registrer office, or on line from

They will charge £9.25 which includes P&P. Don't buy from anywhere else.

BMD references can be found on this site, or for free on
Freebmd are in the process of being transcribed and currently go up to about the 1950s. The earliest date will be in Sept 1837 when civil registration began.
