Would anyone be willing to look at the 1911 Census and tell me who is living at 13, Woolton Street, Much Woolton, Lancashire. It should be a family by the name of Hesketh. I'm after the wife's name age and place of birth if she is still alive.

Many thanks in advance,

Emeltee

Mnay thanks, Dave and Barabara, for the speedy replies. I suspected that I had found Margaret's death pre 1911 and the Census results confirm that.

Much appreciated,

Emeltee

Just out of interest Dave, your possible death is wrong. As the family were living in Woolton in both 1901 and 1911 then Margaret was living in Woolton when she died. The registration district for Woolton is Prescot and there is a death registered in Prescot in 1910 for a Margaret Hesketh aged 59. I think that this is more likely to be her.

The reason I wanted to confirm her death prior to 1911 was to try and ascertain her age as there are several possible Margaret Roberts in the earlier Censuses. Unfortunately it hasn't helped.
