Thank you for your help - sometimes it just a matter of knowing where to look and what names to put in.  I will go onto Find My Past now and see what I can find out
Thank you for all your help.  I am quite new to family research and am most grateful for any advice and help to solve mysteries

Thank you for your help.  I hadn't realised that you could search the 1911 census using an address.  I have found the 1911 census for the Institute now.  It was obviously a large building run by church and nuns.   Quite why Ernest and Ellen were there in August 1913 is a mystery I will probably never be sure of - but it is definitely the place of residence when they married.
Thank you again
