Does the birth certificate of the 1907 Florence give her mother's name as Florence Beatrice or just Florence?

These are the only likely births for a Florence B. Bond that I can see who would be old enough to have a baby in 1907:-

Name: BOND, Florence Beatrice
Registration district: Wisbech
County: Cambridgeshire
Year of registration: 1874
Quarter of registration: Jul-Aug-Sep
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 3B

Name: BOND, Florence Beatrice
Registration district: Bedminster
County: Somerset
Year of registration: 1889

Nicola, please could you answer the question that has been asked 3 times now.

What exactly was the mothers name on the 1907 birth certificate. Was it Florence, Florence Maud or Florence Beatrice.

photographers assistants were probably more common than you think. I have one in my tree from the 1910s. She also had an illegitimate child a long way from where she was born and bred, in Lancashire when she was born in Kent. There also appear to be many Florence Bonds. Possible but maybe not probable unless it was a family name and a family business.

The point I was trying to make was that she may have been a photographer's assistant in 1907 but not necessarily in 1901 or 1911.

Did Florence ever marry? You say she was still connected to the family when she died in the 1990's - was that as Bond?

My guess is that, whoever Florence was, she was sent away to Plymouth to have the baby. Nichola said that Mary Jane Warren who brought up the child was her great grandmother.

I take it that Florence Maud Bond gave birth to Florence Beatrice Bond in 1907. Although the 1911 census where the child is with the Warren family has down as Beatrice.

Nichola can you also tell us what relation the two Florences's are to you.
