Forget how many children you have!

dovercourt but born Enfield
I have found a bit of a conundrum with a 1911 census return in that the family have reported that they had had 6 children and 3 had died.
Looking at the image I could see the names of 3 children (all born after 1901) but I remembered that they had had a child listed on the 1901 census!
So I set to and found the missing 2, soon found them. Now to find the death of the 1901 one! I looked everywhere but to no avail!
On a chance I looked at the parents return and with them was the 1901 child correctly shown as grandchild.
So whats up with the parents - not showing 4 children alive?
