As per the previous topic:

National School Admission Registers & Log-Books 1870-1914
First name(s) Selina
Last name Hatherley
Birth date 07 Oct 1884
Event year 1896
School name Brixham National School
Town Brixham
County Devon
Parent name(s) William
Address: Higher Street
Last school attended: Furzeham B ??

1891 census: Selina Hatherleigh and widower father William (railway porter) are living on Higher Street, Brixham. It matches the address stated in the 1896 school record above.

Also, Selina's birth place is recorded as Brixham in the 1911 census record.

So the popular consensus appears to be this 1884 birth for mum Selina:

HATHERLEY, SELINA ADA MMN: WYLIE
GRO Reference: 1884 D Quarter in TOTNES Volume 05B Page 167

I agree with Mick that her name being recorded as "Selina Lena" on her daughter's birth cert is probably a clerical error.
