Missing ancestor
« on: Tuesday 28 May 19 09:04 BST (UK) »
Hello all,

I am trying, to no avail, to locate the whereabouts of my husband's GG Aunt, Caroline Elizabeth Brooks. Caroline was born 06/11/1891 in Bootle. She was a twin and she was disabled however her disability is not listed on any of the censuses.
 
After 1911 Caroline doesn't appear in any electoral searches, however her twin Louisa Rickard Constable (nee Brooks) took out an insurance policy on Caroline in 1930 and she is listed as living with Louisa and Louisa's husband Thomas at 68 Adlam Road, Toxteth.

There are no other records for Caroline and I can't locate a marriage or death record for her. She seems to have just disappeared!

Please can anyone help me find her?

Many thanks,

Colleen
