Death reg for Charlotte March qtr 1948 shows her as 54 (1894)

Consistent with birth Nov 1893 then.

But in 1901 Scotland I think she is a 12 year old adoptee in Dunblane.

Puzzled about Isabella shown as b 1913

If Jean was b Dec 1913 and Annie 1915 - Isabella must have been born end of 1914 or very early 1915 depending on what month Annie was born

Nothing on SP in Dunblane & Lecropt and that is where Annie’s birth was registered in 1915

If Charlotte married 1924 Heather was 16.  If the children were “sent for” as they reached 15yrs it suggests a school rather than an orphanage.

Annie was 9 when Charlotte remarried and the wording of this posts suggests she never saw her mother for 6 years??
