Ethel May married 1933 John Tobin. 1939 gives her birthdate.

Possibly Northwich or Stafford registration district areas going by the birth registrations I found

BOWKER, GLADYS       mmn EGERTON 
GRO Reference: 1910  M Quarter in NORTHWICH Volume 08A  Page 255

Is this another child
BOWKER, ETHEL  MAY     mmn EGERTON

A baptism Gladys for would give you an address or her birth certificate that might help - I have to say Iíve tried all manner of combinations on family search but nothing  ???

Edit to add or a baptism for Ethel (see Rosie post)

Hi daljul, your opening request was for finding the family in 1911, which on the face of things has proved very elusive. Are you wanting ANY details of their children post this date.

Thanks but I have that information. I am just trying to fill in the details of the family through the census years. I am puzzled as to where they were for the 1911. I can only think that the family was mis transcribed !!!

As suggested you may need the birth certificates or baptisms of the two girls born either side of the 1911 to locate the address they were living at.  You originally suggested Fleetwood but they do not appear to have moved there until after the birth of Ethel in 1912 Stafford registration district

rosie, it appears that is the only solution for this , and even that could be a dead end. The whole family ie Richard & Elizabeth, their children Herbert,Lena, Gladys, Ethel May and Frank Percy all married in th Fylde area. Marha & James died pre 1911 so will not be with them in 1911. They were living at 14 Charles St, Over until at least 10.4.1903 when Martha was buried.

Moving on to other things but hope your searching ends successfully

Hi Dinkey.     A few late comments!
I too tried to find them in 1911, but like everybody had no success.      I noted the observations that the family certainly moved around, which as a retired Builder I would expect that of Richard as a Bricklayers Labourer, who has to follow the work.    He cannot jump in a car and go 5,10 miles or so every day, and as the Labourer he is expected to set the job up for the Bricklayers at day start, scaffolding, bricks, mortar etc in place.
The wide range of Birth locations obviously suggests the family are with him, but any short duration jobs make it hard to get  settled accommodation, hence adding to the difficulty of being on the 1911 Census.
They will be there but could be anywhere I am afraid.
    Cheers.
