Surname Saturday – Where are the Whitlocks?

My great-grandmother was Mary Ann Whitlock, born according to the census, in 1872. My father and I have both been searching for her birth in vain. We’ve also been searching for the birth registration of her twelve siblings. They appear on the census too, but not on the BMD. So where are they all? Looks as though they weren’t registered, or may have been registered under a complete mis-spelling – though it seems unlikely that all thirteen entries would have been spelled wrong.
