These records from the midwife’s register for the years 1905-1917, kept by Eliza Stanley of Badsey and Bretforton, were transcribed by Trevor Hockenhull, with extra information by Maureen Spinks. If you click on the index link you will be taken to an alphabetical index which may contain other entries for the same family. Where Eliza did not give the mother’s forename, or just included the husband’s initial, the actual forename has been added if known. The name of the child born was not included in the register, but this information has been gleaned from other sources (baptism records, civil registration indexes and the 1911 census). It is believed that Eliza often wrote up the register some time after the event and sometimes recorded the wrong information, eg on seven occasions she gave the wrong sex of the child; in instances such as this, the entry as Eliza wrote it has been recorded, but the correct information added in brackets.
