I believe all the children you have listed are Critchley's except S (Simeon) Stansfield who was the first child of Louisa & Joseph Stansfield.

In case you don't have the article on her death:

Barrow Herald and Furness Advertiser 24 June 1911

News In Brief

The total number of persons affected by
ptomaine poisoning at Bacup is now stated
to be 210.  There are one or two extremely
critical cases, and on Saturday the death
took place at the Haslingden Workhouse
of a widow named Louisa Stansfield,
sixty-one years of age, of 17 Back King-
street, Bacup, who was taken ill at the
height of the epidemic and removed to the
workhouse.  She exhibited all the sym-
toms of ptomaine poisoning, and an
inquest will be held.


There are multiple articles on the ptomaine outbreak, which was attributed to consumption of potted meat being improperly stored.  Over 200 affected, and 5 deaths.

Thanks for providing this information about the cause of death, I looked at all the local newspapers for this information but I couldn't find anything, would like to know who else was living at 17 Back King Street Bacup when the 1911 census was taken to see if anymore of Louisa's family may have been with her when she died on 16 June 1911.

Have been looking for Back King St on 1911, but with a bit of comparison with the residents of that street listed on the electoral register in 1910, I've established it's called Austin St on the census.

Which leads to this family

Mother appears to have maiden name Kershaw

The Census record listing the street name as being Austin St instead of Back King St., as stated on Louisa Stansfield's death certificate should be correct, perhaps it was just the local community at the time who knew it as Back King St. because Austin St. does run along the rear of the properties on King St.

Also, the family living at 17 Austin St. during the 1911 census was the Dawson family and there is a connection with Louisa Stansfield because Hannah Stansfield, Louisa's daughter born in Oswaldtwistle in 1885 married James Dawson the son of parents Margaret and the late John Dawson.
The 1911 census also records Louisa Stansfield described as a housekeeper living with James & Hannah Dawson's family at 4 Rimmington Row, Padiham.

So at the time of Louisa's death in June 1911 there's a good chance that someone from the Dawson family would have been with her when she passed away in the Haslingden Workhouse Infirmary.
