Could this be the family in 1901?
Walter b 1875 L'pool  Cab Driver
Wife Elizabeth b 1889 L'pool
Dau Alice b1899 L'pool
son Frederick b 1901 L'pool
Living at 38 Empire Street West Derby Lancashire

Looked into this one due to the Empire Street connection, and found it to be the correct one as they moved to the street where most of the family lived in the following years. I also found a marriage certificate on Ancestry for Walter & Elizabeth, which shows their fathers names, so I can now dig further. Many thanks for the pointer.
Still no joy with Margaret Morris, other than her marriage ! Nothing before or after.

Thanks to Forte's pointer, I found Walter Walker & Family, now digging further. As for Margaret Walker, my grandmother, I found her, sister Frances, and her Mother Margaret in the 1901 census, but no trace on the 1911. Both sisters had their father John listed as deceased on their marriage certificates, and he was not listed at the address in 1901. Family rumours mention the workhouse may be involved somewhere, and I wonder if perhaps their Mother Margaret died whilst they were young, and they were taken in to the workhouse ? Is there a way of finding residents of these establishments on Ancestry ?
