Please help me find Lily!
« on: Saturday 29 June 13 00:22 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for Lily Parnell on the 1901 census.

Born 1897 in Faversham Kent Father: William Russell, Mother: Elizabeth Ann Coppins (Who died in 1904)

I have her on the 1911 census still living in Kent with her stepmother and 2 brothers.
She married in 1917 and died in 1937.

Can anyone help please?

Thats a massive help, I had no idea we could do that, thanks.

In 1917 she was living at 3 Clarendon Court in Maida Hill, London. Have you any idea how I can find out how she ended up here as a daughter of a blacksmith in Faversham?

She would have been 20 in 1917 so was probably in service - that was the occupation most young women were employed in back in those days.

Lily Parnell is my gr.grandmother's sister. I have never posted on this forum before but was very interested when I saw your question. I might have more info about Lily and her family if you want to corroborate.
