St Philip's baptism query

Good evening,

BURROWS, Laura (of 16 Whitby Rd, born ~).
Baptised April 15, 1909, by G Moore at St Philips Church, Shalesmoor.
Parents name(s) are Grace Clara & William (Labourer).

The FHS transcription says this baptism was on *March* 15th (though they read her first name as 'Lana')

Sadly this is her burial on April 1st:

BURROWS, Laura (Daughter of William Burrows, age 9 weeks).
Died at 16 Whitby Road; Buried on April 1, 1909 in Consecrated ground;
Grave Number 203, Section A of Darnall Cemetery, Sheffield.
Parent or Next of Kin if Available: ~. Remarks: from Darnall Parish: Officiating Minister W.M. Irwin.

Is it possible to check the reading of the date of the baptism?

I find it strange that she was baptised 15th april but you have a burial 1st April!

Hello Hugh

I have amended the entry to March
It was on a page full of April baptisms
