That certificate should have her place of birth on it. Or at least what the informant believed it to be...(they are not always correct!)

I've had a look on Find My Past and the death registration gives her birth date as 31st Dec 1889 in Birmingham but another is down as 1885 in Glamorgan. And then there is a Civil Birth Registration of an Esther May White in Birmingham (Aston) in 1885. I suspect that the 1885 one isn't her. Just to add more confusion.

I’ve yet to find anything more on her being born in Birmingham or in 1889, I suppose that that is based on the knowledge of the informant. My granddad’s cousin remembers being told she was from Bradford, but that could just be a story like the Leeds link.

For Joseph, I have found a parish baptism record for 1862 in Birmingham, but I can’t say that that is the same chap. Likewise marriage records for 1865, 1871 and 1872 but they would disprove the baptism one being for him or vice versa due to age.

Thank you to anyone who has looked into it, I’m grateful.

I did notice (while I was looking for Joseph) that there are iron working families who moved to Glasgow and back again in the 1880s and 1890s

Ie, have you checked for a birth in Scotland?

That’s interesting, I’ll have a look into it today. Thank you.

There was an Esther White born in Scotland in 1889 (I’m open minded on that as the death registration lists that date, although oddly the grave stone gives her an age meaning she’d have been born in 1891 in line with the 1939 record). However, the father, an iron moulder journeyman, is called William not Joseph. And there is no Joseph that I can see in the 1901 census for them.
