I looked but couldn't find her in the census for those dates. Shame we cannot access anything later.

Daisy is a bit hard to pin down (the name Daisy Foster isn't uncommon) but there's a likely looking Red Cross volunteer record in 1913-14 and she's with her parents in St Leonards-on-Sea in the 1920s and early 1930s.

I'll include various records for the family, which helps tie things together somewhat, but you likely have some/all of it already.

I couldn't find any newspaper reference about Daisy's death or funeral but as her death was registered in the same quarter as her father's it must have been quite soon after.

Also, I couldn't find any probate records for either of her parents, which seems a bit odd given Robert's occupation/career. If he had left a will it may have named Daisy and had some more info.
