I've been looking for Minnie Frances in Elisabeth Ann's own paper, the Sunday Dispatch. Thought her death might be mentioned (if so, haven't found it so far!)
Unfortunately I do not have full access :(
But this may be all there is!

9 July 1939, page 9
Mrs. Loring Fox, mother of Elisabeth Ann, Sunday Dispatch Woman's Page Editress, underwent a major operation yesterday in a London nursing home. Mr. Alfred A. Loeser, gynecologist, who operated on Elisabeth Ann successfully 18 months ago, performed the operation.

Not quite the kind of information you would want to be published  :-\

Sadly, a probable early death for Minnie's son
HILL, ROWLAND  REGINALD     
Age at Death (in years): 20 
GRO Reference: 1926  D Quarter in ST. MARYLEBONE  Volume 01A  Page 629

His dad seems to have died a few years later
HILL, REGINALD  THOMAS     
Age at Death (in years): 63 
GRO Reference: 1929  D Quarter in CROYDON  Volume 02A  Page 394

Croydon directory for 1928 has Reginald Thomas Hill at 2 Torridge Road, Thornton Heath.
Unfortunately that may be the last year available.
Seems to have been at that address for quite a few years.

A newspaper story, Norwood News, 16 June 1922.
Terrible free text, but the gist seems to be that Rowland Hill, of 2 Torridge Road, Thornton Heath, and another lad were summoned for playing football somewhere or other, and annoying the residents.
Looks like they were fined half a crown each.

So, apart from that minor spot of bother, all seems normal with the family.

I agree, heywood, very strange. Can't see any more on her in there.

After all our hard work, and the interest shown by many, it would be nice to have a response from m23to53 :)

There are a couple of earlier records for Amy Adamson entering the U.K. - one with a daughter Julie b 1921 (I had thought she might be Eulalia but too young). They are described as ‘Russian’ and residents of Iraq.

1930, and, interestingly, the address given is one in Thornton Heath, 290 Brigstock Road, just a couple of streets away from the last known residence of the Hills. Mrs Millar was listed in the directory and still living there in 1939.
An outgoing record from 1928 has a West Croydon address, and there is a Raynes Park one on an arrival in 1932.

Amy and Julie are in the free index to 1939 at 14 Matheson Road, Fulham. Not sure Julie is open on ancestry, and may be in the end pages.
Amy L Adamson, born 1889, and Julie Grice (Adamson), born 1920.

Marriage, June 1941, Cleethorpes
John R Grice and Julie Adamson

I have been trying to follow a couple of Fox's who were living with Minnie and Elizabeth at various times in Sussex Gardens.

One is Charles Kenneth Fox and the one who is with them in 1939 Christopher D Fox with a DOB of 23rd July 1889. But neither seem to exist.  :-\

m23to53 do you actually have Minnie's death cert,albeit there do seem to be 2 of them.

According to the online GRO indexes there is only death regstration for Minnie - in the December quarter - which I have now applied for.

Sorry I have been silent the last few days but another mystery has come up which has grabbed my attention while waiting for the certificate. I must admit I am a little surprised that little has been mentioned the two Fox's and if either could have been the reason for Minnie's Loring-Fox surname -  though they seem invisible as far as records go. I also wonder about the Loring name, and if they are in London on electoral rolls under another name. Only 2499 entries to check for Minnie Frances and 104000 for Elizabeth Ann !

AH, a cursory search has found Elizabeth Ann Loring living 69 Hillcrest Gdns, Thames Ditton in 1935 with Christopher and Minnie Frances Fox. Another Ancestry error - does not come up when you search for Loring, only Minnie finds it.
