Hmm, not sure what to think here.

The 1901 has the following children listed:-

Frances (1889), Harry (1894), George (1897), Mary (1899) and Robert (1888).  Robert seems to have been listed last on the image for some reason.

Surname transcribed as Whidley on Find My Past.

There was a lot of confusion surrounding the 1911 census as this was the first to be filled in by the occupant.
I think he's misread it & just put the 4 still at home + the one that died instead of including all of them.

Yes, that's probably it Jim.  I found that with a family I was researching.  One more child than I was expecting, searched the births umpteen times and came to the conclusion that they had included a still born child.
