Looks like all of those should at least appear in 1901/1911.

1901/ 1911 is  free to search at familysearch.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XSW3-MBB  (1901)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XW9M-RLL  (1911)

Then use the 1939 register.

P.

you can also use the gro searches.

Florence Harris' birth record has her as Florence May Harris.

When researching a person it does help to see if they have a middle name which can distinguish them from others.

Excellent advice from JJ - the first priority should be to ascertain the full name at birth and as good a birthdate as can be found, in order that the right person can be identified with confidence in later records.

I see that Gertrude was registered at birth as Gertrude Linda Harris (Jun qtr 1904 Devon).  Birthdate was 4/4/1904 according to her school records (Upottery).

Annie was just Annie Harris, birth reg Sep qtr 1888 Honiton.  She was baptised at Cotleigh on 30 September 1888, but no birthdate was noted in the register.
