I can see a widowed Margaret Wright in 1911 lodging with Mary Gallagher aged 71 (her mother?)  in Margaret Street, Widnes head of household Henry Pountain.
Unfortunately none of the children are with her.

There's a Peter Wright aged 10 recorded in St. Vincent's Poor Law School, Fulwood, Preston.  On the same page is a Joseph Wright, but his age is recorded as 9, so maybe it's only a coincidence.

Billybobb -
How do you know that they had a sister called Lilly?
I can see a couple of Lily/Lilian/Lilly Wrights born about the right time, but none of them has the right MMN.
