The two children who died very young were William James 1872-1873 and Rose 1878-1879. Again I have checked all the deaths between 1891 when she was on the census and the next in 1901 but I couldn't find her.

DeceasedOnline free index has a burial of a Manton Young in Edinburgh in 1951.  From other names, I've worked out that it was actually in 1949.
There is the possibility though that they have mistranscribed the name Marion!

This is getting interesting!

Thank goodness for my free credits!

Death 22nd April 1949, Lauriston Place, Edinburgh, Charles Young, City Evangelist, widower of Ada Moth

There is no death for a Manton Young.

Are the two one and the same?

This is really so kind of you all and it appears that like me, you feel that you won't be beaten. She must be somewhere!! It's amazing reading through all the comments how much lateral thinking there is in trying to solve this problem. I await any more suggestions with great interest, please let there be a future "Eureka" moment.
Many, many thanks

I was going through the electorals as you were posting!
I'll put up the results anyway

Edinburgh Central Division
George Square Ward

Lot of people at this address!
They are listed in alphabetical order by surname
1945 No. 131 last names are Claud Wright, Jessie Wright
1946 ditto
1947 last name is Charles Young. Date for this is 15 October
1948 ditto, Charles Young
1949 last name is Jessie Wright.
1950 ditto

Perhaps we can find Charles + Ada before then.

But I am thinking that the burial record can't be the same chap because it says that "Manton" was buried 29 March. Along with 33 others! The others I found deaths for in the index were in 1949.

it appears that like me, you feel that you won't be beaten.

We're giving it a good go!

I forgot to add that the Charles who died in 1949 was 85 years old.

Now, here's dedication for you  ;D  I had treated myself to a load of credits to Deceased Online some time ago and had some left. Curiosity got the better of me  :D

Manton Young was buried, along with many others, all of the address 'University' on 29th March 1951 at Seafield Cemetery. His age at death was 85, which is exactly the same as the Charles Young, widower of Ada Moth, who died in 1949.

Aged 85 in 1949 gives a date of birth of c. 1864 which is exactly the same as the Manton Young in the 1911 census.

Well done Jen, and you are certainly being most generous!
It is true that Manton seems to appear from nowhere and then disappear, so who knows!

1946 has, at 25 Panmure Place
Ada G Young
Charles Young

1947
Gone!

So it is looking like the couple in question, and the G initial for Ada is promising. But who was Elizabeth P Young in 1945?

The SP Credits were free ones I'd accumulated over some time. I still have a lot left.

My free credits ran out at the end of the summer. I did use them up, but I don't have much to look for in Scotland. I'm not sure they give them away now :(
Panmure Place is just to the south of Lauriston Place. So that looks very good, and the dates tie in.
A word of caution about Elizabeth P Young, there were a good few people at 25 Panmure, they were listed alphabetically again. So not guaranteed to be living in the same household as Charles and Ada G (sure those two must have been together!)
