After that she isn`t found.  Where did she go ?
In 1861 her mother who had been with her in 1851 was still with the children.

Have you checked the ages of the various Mary Windsor deaths in that area & Shropshire using GRO online?

Have you checked for a possible remarriage?

Have you checked 1871?  Possibility in Lunatic asylum in Shropshire

The lunacy admissions registers on ancestry have a Mary Windsor, admitted 27 June 1856, asylum Salop, discharged 14 Aug 1883, not improved.
So that looks like a transfer.
Mary Windsor admitted 14 Aug 83, asylum Parkside. Discharged 30 Dec 84, not improved.
Another transfer!
Finally, Mary Windsor admitted 30 Dec 84, Salop, discharged 29 Jan 95, Dead

Possible?
Mar 1895 Atcham 6a 564
Windsor, Mary   
age 74

M. W. in 1891? Female patient. Age 71

Thanks,  I had seen the admissions in Shropshire,  but not found her in the census. 
I can't seem to find her in 1861 when she should be in an Asylum in Shropshire.
On the census I do have her 1841 and 51 she has no occupation.
I wonder why she was moved from Denbighshire.

Hi
I think it will be her.

In July 1853  Mary was admitted to Denbigh Mental Hospital , she is known to have been there in March 1854.

Missed her in the admissions!
Mary Windsor admitted 19 July 1853, asylum N. Wales
Discharged 27 June 56.
She is marked up in the not improved column.

Mary Windsor, admitted 27 June 1856, asylum Salop

So she was transferred to the Shropshire asylum :(
There is the trail, sadly she was in the asylums for forty years.
John
