Is this a baptism of Twins?
On the first entry there is a clear line drawn between the two given names Andrea Helen and Caroline. Is this the baptism of twins or is the column just being used as extra space for the Mothers name (Caroline Jane)?
So yes with Andrea Helen baptism record showing birth 1963 - that does appear to be confirmation. Generally though when indexing - we don't search other records...0
Could you share the full URL or at least a screenshot, please, so we can see what you are looking at?0

Opinion: My assumption would be that Carolin[e] Irene are the given names of the mother. I have nothing to base this on other than the horizontal division line that was drawn in...0
Could they be twins?0
That's the question being asked. I don't think they are twins - but could they? sure
Note: The e in Caroline - laps/spans the vertical column border.
If it's a twin then I would expect Henry to be a Surname? This just demonstrates the recorder 'not staying within the lines' (understandable with lengthy names). Further - based upon that first row writing style - I would say the recorder entering those lines is different than the recorder for the other rows (only entry on the page for 2 June 1968).
Again my preferred interpretation is that Caroline Irene is the mother's given names.0
We are never going to be able to be positive on this one. Do any of the reference images show something similar? If there are any do any include under the line what appears to be a male name?0
I have found a marriage for a Caroline Irene Hodges and Philip M. H. Young in the Bristol area for June 1962, so I think these are the same people and that answers the question that the mother's name is Caroline Irene and there is just one daughter, Andrea Helen. I did find a record of a baptism in Free BMD for Andrea Helen, but there wasn't a corresponding one for a Carolione Young for the same date, so I think that confirms it.
I hope this helps!
Thanks for letting us know! 😀0
