Edith Ella Fields?
« on: Monday 07 August 17 15:42 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I'm trying to trace some information about Edith Ella Fields - my great aunt.

Born in 1896/7, she was 5 at the time of the 1901 census. However that's all I can find about her, no death record, marriage record, nothing else. She was the daughter of George (My Great Grandfather) and Clara Fields (Nee Kilby).

There is a chance she did marry a Mr Young but again, I can't find any trace! Am I looking in the wrong place?

I don't suppose anyone can shed any light on this or help please? It seems the whole family was out when the 1911 census was done because I can't find a single one of them! All twelve of them!!

Any help would be much appreciated...

Thanks!

list all 12 from the 1891/1901 census and we'll see if we can find some leads for you in 1911.
We won't be able to do a a lookup though

Ancestry has them as Fields

Fileds! Found them ha ha!! Thank you so much!

However Edith Ella isn't on this census. She was 5 in 1901 so should have been 15. I can't find any death record for her still. I don't suppose you have a suggestion as to where else I should lok do you please?

Thank you!!

Also thank you Pauline for finding that - I was beginning to think I'd made her up!

Found her! Thank you so very much!

It's funny - our name switched from 'Field' to 'Fields' around 1800 and it seems as if it swiched back in the eyes of the census takers!

And I wonder if that's her death record. If so, she's the second daughter to die relatively young :(

I really appreciate your help, thank you so much!

The census takers work from written records completed by the family or someone on their behalf.  The birth registrations for the children of George & Clara change from Field to Fields with no particular pattern as to why.
