Reading between the lines, I would say Lizzie was never married to Joseph.

That's the conclusion I reached too ...I don't know what happened to Joseph's wife Elizabeth she is only on one census with him .and the first 3 children 1891

I put a birth search in for Mofatt children born Birkenhead  between 1912 and 1918 just using mothers name Elizabeth Lea ...all 3 came up
When I tried using just father's name Joseph Mofatt none came up so that is quite conclusive .

1911 eldest son Thomas Lancelot Moffat is living nearby at his father Joseph at 116 Claughton  road Birkenhead

With his wife and baby .

  * ()Widowed/# 
Sorry   married  Joseph Moffat and youngest two children are at 113 Conway road

His widowed mother and sister are listed in a separate page of 1911 census  but address is also  113 Conway road
 Why isn't this on same page ?

I thought Joseph declared himself as married in 1911.

Perhaps they were listed separately because they were two separate households in the same house.

Yes Joseph declared himself as married in 1901 and 1911. Oops my mistake will modify
Though he may have been divorced or widowed

It's a pity the years married and number of children isn't filled in for him

Joseph and children Ann Jane b1885 Joe B 1890 and lily b1894 are with him in 1901 in same shared house as his parents and some siblings
Then 1911 shared house his mother Ann Moffat married sis Mary Ann Hilton and  her Statton grandsons are in the other half.
