Hi

On the FreeBMD I cannot see a Lilian Roberts b. 1871 Leeds, the closest is 1868 Bramley or Bradford and 1874 Leeds, Lilian Blanche Roberts.

There are possible Lily Roberts' in 1870 and 1872 in Bradford and Barnsley.

Is the date you give definitely a birth and not a baptism?

Births Dec 1870
Roberts Lilly Hunslet 9b 255

According to the 1881 Census the Lily Roberts born Hunslet is the daughter of William Crooks Roberts, a theatrical machinist and his wife Grace, a dressmaker.
