Hi Julie. Thank you for looking up the details in the census return of 1901. I am delighted with the result as so much information is new to me. I was so interested to know that this family lived in Cardiff, not Abergavenny a I had thought and also, what their occupations were. Annie, a school teacher in Cardiff in 1901 was later to go out to Zululand, South Africa as governess to my mother and her many siblings, so it was so interesting to see that she was already a teacher when she started her life in Zululand. (My grandfather was a missionary in Nhlati, in northern Zululand, far from any formal schools). This is a wonderful service, I have come far further in my research and thank you very much, for your time and prompt and detailed response which I greatly appreciate. Regards, Jennifer
