There are admissions of the younger children to the school at Hanwell
Possibly the last ones in October 1910
Albert Penny, 12, Ada Penny, 10
Says father Walter in workhouse, the whereabouts of mother Caroline seems to be unknown!

Ada probably at Hanwell in the 1911 census. Albert was discharged to the Exmouth.

Earlier admissions in March 1909, a difference in Ada's date of birth? Both discharged to father in April.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS2G-1QKJ-B?i=459&cat=289304

Ada popped back in for a spell in June 1909.
Further back, Ada and Albert, May-Dec 1908. Says father Walter in St George's workhouse

Thanks as always for your help John. This confirms what my uncle told me i.e that my great grandmother left her husband and family.

Thank you everyone for your help. I need to digest this information and decide what to do next. My brother has also been searching for our great grandmother's birth and where she went to. She doesn't seem to be on the 1939 Register either....
