There are no Violets with mother Southgate and surname Power. And can't see any reason why she would be registered under another name. No deaths which fit either though. A real mystery this one

Yes. So frustrating. If I hadn't seen baptism, she wouldn't have existed.
The family seemed to be doing it tough. Would they have adopted her out do you think? Would there be searchable records for that? Maybe they just left her in the workhouse๐Ÿ˜ช

Suppose if they didn't register her birth they may not have registered her death either. No would be too early for adoption records but she may have lived with a member of the family and taken their name. Have you searched for all the half siblings in the 1911 and checked if a Violet living there. Sorry not being a great deal of help here but am as mystified as you are.
