Hi Joy,
  I tried using Elizabeth Gray with other surname Lees - and vice versa. I didn't look at all entries with only Gray and no other names. She must have died between the 1901 Scotland Census and the 1911 England Census.
*
  The family don't know what happened to Amelia Copeland Gray. There is a marriage record that could be her in the FreeBMD index, but I'd have to pay 9.25 to see if it's her.
*
Thanks
Richard

UPDATE 2: With help, I found a death record on the FreeBMD index for ELISABETH (with an S) Gray in Q March 1908 registered in Chertsey, Surrey, England; vol 2a page 62 line 246.

Family Search has the same record but it's under ELIZABETH with a Z. No wonder our hobby is so challenging.   :)

Now if info on Amelia Copeland Gray doesn't appear soon, I won't be too disappointed as this branch of my tree is somewhat distant.

Thanks
Richard
