Help needed - Gladys Trott

Hi

I can't find my great grandmother on the 1901 Census - or any of her family?

I've got her mother on all the previous census results as variants of Rosina, Roseina and Rose - her maiden name was Dodge.

Rose married William S Trott in 1893 and they appear in the 1911 Census with 4 children - Charles (1895), Fred (1897), Gladys (1898) and Edward (1901). This fits exactly with what my Grandmother remembers of her mother's family.

But I can't find any of them in the 1901 Census??

Can anyone help me or advise where or how else to look?

Many thanks
Kate

Really, can anyone help me understand why I can't find Gladys or any of her family in the 1901 census?

Or is there an alternative way I can look for any of these people?

Gladys and her siblings were all born in South Petherton, Somerset.

It just seems odd to me that I can find them on the 1911 census but not the 1901?

There are two Gladys Trott's on the 1901 Census in Somerset of the right age, but neither of them are with the correct parents or siblings.
