Birth records for my great aunt, Mary Jane Passey, b. Oct 13, 1871 in Collington, Herefordshire, England.

0 votes
Mary Jane Passey was my mother's great aunt. My mother's mother (of course) was her neice, her name was Violet May Passey. She was born in 1896 in England I am told in Worchestershire. I would like to have the birth records for both ladies. Violet May's mother was a single mother at the time - which I'm sure makes it difficult to access vital records. I would be grateful for any information. Thank you. Aline M. Cook

I've taken a three-year period around both dates and checked across Herefordshire and Worcestershire for both names with no success.  It's not an issue with the BMD's that Violet's mother was a single mother, unless the father consented to have her registered under his name - he would have to be present at the registration for that.

I've also done a nationwide search for both within a three-year period of the dates given with no success.  Is there a possibilty of name changes?

I have also checked on the censuses.  In 1901 there is a Violet M. Passey (born Coleford Gloucestershire in 1891) living with her grandmother Sarah Passey, who was born in Eastnor, Herefordshire.

The 1891 census shows a Mary Passey born around 1869 in Collington Hereford as a servant in Gloustershire.  The birth reference is;

Dec 1868 Passey Mary Jane  Bromyard 6a 530

This will enable you to purchase the birth record from the GRO.

There is a birth of Violet May Passey in 1894;

The reference is:  Mar 1894 Violet May Passey Bromyard 6a 518
