Thanks for that tip.  I have sent an email with my request.  I think I will follow up on the house she was living in in St. Leonards to see who else lived there as she states that she was a Companion Housekeeper so it may shed some light.

Yes, It's worth doing that, even if rather a long shot.You need someone with a Kelly's for that year.If I were you I would do what someone suggested and repost with the Kelly's lookup for that year and area in the title.
If that fails you could try the local library--Hollington Library
http://www.eastsussex.gov.uk/libraries/find/hollington/default.htm
Click on the Hollington Library link to email.They may refer you to Hastings Library, which I suspect is bigger.

Of course, I suppose that she could have been cremated?!You could contact Langney Crematorium
  http://www.eastbourne.gov.uk/community/bereavement/contact/
This may not be the correct address, but I'm sure that they could point you in the right direction if necessary.

I hope that this is helpful, and fingers crossed for a result.
When I wander around the local cemeteries, I will keep my eyes open..... ;D

Hopefully it will prove helpful in some way  :)

Couple more bits of info. that may, or may not, help :-

John Martin Bell - born 1839 and died 1920, age 81 in Hailsham... wonder if that's the Mr Bell? 

1911 Census shows this for the St Leonards address :- ST RONAN'S, NO 3, 21 PEVENSEY ROAD, ST LEONARDS ON SEA

Wonder what St Ronan's was?  Shall investigate!

Thank you all for all your detective work.   I have Mr Bell in 1911 census as  Charles Jeffrey Bell, living at 6 Sedlescombe Road South, St Leonards-on-Sea, Hastings.  Elizabeth is single and occupants are Mr Bell, Grace Chapman a domestic servant and Florence Tucker Bennett a servant domestic. Mr Charles J. Bell death reg'd 1911 (lst quarter) Mile End Old Town , London aged 60 lc page 303.  In 1901 census he is Charles A Bell with Eliz. but that may just be a slip.

I do have a lot of info on the family Eliz is my grandmother's sister. I wonder how this tree is on line? I do use Family Tree Maker so just wondering what the source is as mine isnt public.  Very interesting but missing some children and some inaccuracy. 

St Ronans appears on that list as a nursing home but not in that location but perhaps that is what it is.   I do appreciate all your help and much  useful advice.

Not sure if I have done this correctly but in the 1911 census does it give any names?  Also I found Mr Bell's probate info d 6 June 1911 address 21 Pevensey Rd but he died at Lindisfarne, Tower Rd West, Sussex.   Is there a hospital there?  I have had a great response from Archives and hopefully I can get something on line as I won't have a lot of time when I get there.

If this is Tower Rd West in St Leonards-on-sea, then the road has large victorian houses.
I don't have access to the 1911C, but if you do, then you may be able to work out the number and get more info after that.
I can't find a ref to Lindisfarne, and it doesn't sound the sort of name given to a hospital, so perhaps this was simply a large family home.
I can't find a hospital;there are a few nursing homes there now.

Mr Charles J. Bell death reg'd 1911 (lst quarter) Mile End Old Town, London aged 60 lc page 303.  In 1901 census he is Charles A Bell with Eliz. but that may just be a slip.

On the 1911 quick search with the names of Bell, Chapman, Bennett and Myers it brings up :

BELL, CHARLES JEFFREY - Male, born 1856, aged 55, living in Hastings Sussex.

So if he's 55 when the census was taken in 1911 how can his death be registered in London at the age of 60 also in 1911?  ???


Edit... Just found this one :

Deaths Jun 1922 - Bell, Charles J, age 66 in Hastings 2b 56

Maybe that's him and not the other Mr Bell in London?
