Registring a birth

Classification: Query
I am trying to find the procedure,what documents where required,to register a birth in the UK in 1939.Now days at the registry office all you require from the hospital is the discharge papers and or what is called 'red book',medical notes on the child,plus you usual forms of identity.
Reason is regarding a birth in 1939,to an unmarried mother and I suspect,that the unmarried women aged 19,that her mother,aged 40 registered the child in her name,to save the social stigma of unmarried mothers,at that time
