Have you found Florence on the 1901 census? She would have been 16/17.

No trace of Florence on 1901 census or her Grandfather George despite numerous searches.I think they are together somewhere but don't seem to be in Bradford on Avon!
Sorry I said Ellen I meant Mary Maria who married Thomas Smale.All her children were born after Florence per census records, so I presume Florence was before she married.Only a thought....
On probate records she was also known as Florence Maud Howald. Died in 1960 aged 77

Have found  that Florence and husband Ernest were witnesses to the wedding of Thomas George Smale(known as George) and Fannie Coker in 1910.Almost certain that she is his half sister and Mary Maria is her mother.Have sent for marriage certificate.
Where is she in 1901 though?

Florence's marriage certificate shows her father as George Collett-Warehouseman. Would a guardian be shown as a father?I only ask because her Grandfather was George but he was a shoe maker!
