GRO records

Hi all, I'm trying to find the birth record on GRO for a Francis Yates. I can see him on FreeBMD as YATES Francis, registered Dec 1869, registration district St. Giles 1b 517.

I'm trying to find the mother's maiden name but for some reason the GRO site isn't working for me and crashed before and wonder if someone could take a look and see if they can find the record.

Many thanks, John

Thanks Bert, no wonder I couldn't find it. However, unfortunately not the correct person. Looking at marriage details from 1866 it appears that the mother's name wass Mary McGrath, but she was previously married to George Nicholson in 1866; he died somewhere between then and 1877 when she married Charles Yates (or Yeates) so Charles is stepfather to Francis or Frank, and the 1881 return states, born London c1870. The family were living in Everton in Norton Street.

Sorry for the confusion.

Names - Orrett, Orritt, Ross, McCabe, Keeley, Bullen, White, Leatham, McKeon, Bilsbarrow, Yates, Sennett, Sinnett, Traynor, Ashton

Why would he be registered as Yates if born c8 years before his mother married Charles Yates? Or am I reading the above incorrectly?
