1911 -Occupation Actress
« on: Friday 28 April 17 03:37 BST (UK) »
Hello

Bit of a shot in the dark.
I have come across on 1911 Census
 
for Alice Pike b 1884 Daglingworth, Gloucestershire.

Living in Great Titchfield Street, London.

Her Occupation is listed as ACTRESS and the number 466 as an occupation code.

466 is listed as Actor
467 is Actor Art, Music and Theatre.

Does anybody have any records, reviews or reports that might shed a light on what kind of Actress Alice was and what she may have done.

Any help would be greatfully received

thanks in advance

Hi Colin,

Just to clarify...

Is Alice Pike her real name or her stage name?

Can you give who her parents are to help please?

Was she single or married in 1911, if so is this her marital surname & who is her hubby?

Hi

Her full birth name was Alice Mary Pike
She was single on 1911 Census.

Her parents were Alfred and Elizabeth Pike (Nee Smith)

That's all I have at the moment

I have a possible listing for her (Alice M Pike) on 1965 Electoral roll living in London. Gloucester Street.
A marriage would rule this line out though.

Thanks for your reply

What about 1939?

She may have still been single at that time & a search of the index is free i.e. worth a look in the area.

It's very difficult to research the activities of actors and actresses without knowing the stage name.
