I can't see a death of a Nellie/Ellen/Eleanor Ann Wilson in 1963 who was the right age to have been born in 1876. Where have you got her birth year from?

only shown as Nellie

Name: Nellie Daniels
Birth Date: abt 1876
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1963
Age at Death: 87

Inferred County: Hertfordshire

So you need to get her marriage cert for her age and fathers name

Could this possibly be her birth:-

Name: WILSON, Ellen Annie
Registration district: Northampton
County: Northamptonshire
Year of registration: 1875
Quarter of registration: Jan-Feb-Mar
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 3B
Page no: 60

or this:-


Name: WILSON, Ellen Annie
Registration district: Cookham
County: Berkshire
Year of registration: 1876
Quarter of registration: Oct-Nov-Dec
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 2C
Page no: 399

or this:-


Name: WILSON, Ellen Annie
Registration district: Kensington
County: London
Year of registration: 1878
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Not available before 1911 Q3
Volume no: 1A
Page no: 17

I think you need to buy her marriage certificate to get her father's name.

I think I would be more likely to go with the Kensington birth going by the age given on the 1901 census if she did marry David Daniels.
