Many thanks for the help. We sent for two certificates, not knowing which was the girl we were looking for. Surprised to find that they are almost identical. I am guessing due then to the two different entries. The mother was using a name that was not hers. Her husband was alive but she had been living with another man and using his name (common law wife?) but then had a child by yet another man, who appears on the certificates. Still not sure what the child's legal name would be. So, still confused!
