also found this birth reg :

Found two other researcher and made contact: confirmed Sarah Pickering's parents were George Charles H Pickering and Alice Elizabeth Webb. One was the grandaughter of Sarah and Harry Hanslow who's mother is still living at 103 and another g/daughter who's father is still living at 98 !

Sarah Pickering Hanslow: Death 15 Dec 1959 Smethwick, Staffordshire, England.

Neither are sure where George Charles H Pickering was born and cannot find a birth reg.

Did have info on Alice Elizabeth Webb

Registration for Kings Norton covers three counties

From the site

"Kings Norton spans the boundaries of the counties of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire"

I've found in my searching the town they were born in is in one of these three counties, which can be a bit confusing as the county can interchange on each census depending on the collectors opinion.
