I have a brother and sister marrying a brother & sister in the Sleaford area of Lincolnshire.
According to the 1911 census, both couples lost several children  -- can anyone help find the missing ones?

On 1911 census reported 9 children, 4 still living. I only have 8 can anyone find the 9th?
1 Sarah 1882 1970  Rauceby
2 Thomas 1887 1887
3 George 1888 1888
4 Susannah 1890   Heydour

6 John Edward 1896 1896  Welby
7 John William 1898 1965  Welby
8 Walter 1901 1901  Welby

Sarah Northing & William Headland m Oct 1880 Sleaford
On 1911 census reported 13 children, 1 still living. I can only find 6 can anyone find another 7 ?

Yes
That is how I found John & Sarah Northing's children

Unfortunately, William & Sarah Headland do not seem to have registered the births or deaths of any of their children after the first one. Even after I found Parish Register entries, I could not find corresponding GRO entries

Just wondering, as there are baptisms of some of the children for both couples in the parish registers on findmypast but not all. whether either or both couples misunderstood the 'born alive' nature of the number of children?

Apart from Susannah,

Just for info MMN for her is down as Northern.

Sorry, yes I should have said that I checked both Northing & Northern variations for both couples

Also without a specified Mother's maiden names in case of any other variations

Just checked my tree, I only have six children for John and Sarah.....and none for William and Sarah, so not much help I'm afraid....these children are cousins of my Grandmother, Hilda Maud Northing (1895-1971) she lived at Welby, Lincolnshire, and married Arthur Ayto.

Nice to meet you "cousin"

Hilda Maud was my Grandfather's cousin -- Clarence Willie (1895 - 1973), son of Edward Northing & Betsy Ann Neal
I think that makes us 3rd cousins? We will have to swap notes -- I do not have a lot of info on your branch
