Excellent, you found her birth.
I missed your post about her marriage.

This will give you an idea of the number of people employed in 1901, there may have been more than one mill of course.

There is a way around this problem which I found by accident   ;)

When you find the entry you want a link for right click on the name and select 'open in new tab' (in the new tab the correct link will show)

Nice one, thanks, it was doing my head in, of course I'm on iPad just now but discovered if you keep your finger on the name the choice to open in a new tab comes up.

so did William buy the mill after Gleeson died?
