Whose birth certificate?

Do you actually have one?

I rather think you don't.................

The one name which is ALWAYS on a child's birth cert is its mother's

Linda

welcome to the boards - do you have Lucy's fathers name? If so it is worth looking for possible marriages in that name on www.freebmd.org.uk.

Or put his name and wife's first name on here and someone will look it up for you.

Linda

An odd middle name such as 'Grainger' usually leads you to the mothers maiden name as Reggie shows above.

Unfortunately, fathers not named, so you'll need to purchase the marriage cert to be 100% sure

It's on the marriage index info.....

but...........if you already knew the first names of her parents, you could have done as I did, and looked at freebmd for their marriage

Just a thought. You say the mothers maiden name is not on the certificate - could you mean that it is not recorded in the baptismal entry rather than the actual Birth Certficate.

The mention of 'certificate' is inaccurate.............the OP means the INDEX on freebmd. Note that she quotes the GRO refs!
