Did you order from the GRO?
Did you use the GRO reference or the DOB?

The reference was posted on your other thread on 17 September Susan.

I used GRO REF

If you ordered from GRO, and they can't find it you could always try the Rotherham records see if you can apply direct to them as they keep the local registers.

This is their reference for the birth:
