Arter Rose Hannah -HELP!


master brummie
I'm trying to find birth year for Rose Hannah Arter, born in Birmingham, so that I can order her birth certificate, but the sources I have point to different birth years.
1901 census records her as 16, so birth year around 1884/5
She married my great grandfather Henry Deeley in 1954, aged 70 (according to the marriage certificate) so birth year around 1884/5
Her death is recorded in 1966, aged 84, so birth year around 1882.
I've searched through the 1880s on GReunited, and cannot find any Rose Hannah Arter born. FreeBMD also produces no results. Could it be that her birth wasn't regsitered?
I'd be very grateful for any suggestions...
If it helps, she married Frank Brooke in 1906

i think the 1911 may help you as it was filled in by the occupants themselves.

This is from the 1891 Census, so it looks like 1885 is correct.
