It's funny that Lizzie was mentioned because that name popped into my head this morning when I woke up.  Lizzie makes a lot more sense than Liffin or Siffin but you never know.

Many who learnt to write in the 1950's and before will remember this form of z
I think that(or very similar) is what  see in the middle of the signature.

And  when you look at the 1911 census it seems that one of the sisters filled out the census and is the same person who wrote the letter.

I found Woodfield in Rochdale on the 1901 UK census.  A John E Heginbottom and his wife Sarah H. lived there.  I looked at another letter in a file at an archive and it was from a Ernest Heginbottom on Woodfield in Rochdale.  So Sissie from the 2nd letter must be Sarah H on the census.  Maybe Sarah H was a Whitaker before her marriage.

Yes,  and there's the capital 'L' at the beginning of the word too....  ;D and that's the style of writing I was taught and I still use....  yes, as an aside .... in the cursive style the capital letter 'Q' is akin to the number '2'

I read the name as Lizzie.
