Looking for Mary Hannah Severn )nee Eason

Brisbane, Queensland
Hi. I am a new member and need help in trying to find out what happend to my grandmother, I have been able to trace her up until her marriage in 1914 to Frederick Severn and birth of children, Bertha 1915 and Douglas 1917 after that I have hit a brick wall.

Mary Hannah Eason born c1891 in Riddings, Derbyshire.
Gave birth to William Eason in 1911 (father unknown) Nottingham I think
Married Frederick Severn on 4/1914 in Mansfield Nottingham
Daughter (my mother) born 26/8/1915 in Basford Nottingham
Son (uncle) Douglas Herbert Severn in 1917

Since 1917 haven't been able to find any records of her whereabouts, my mother Bertha maintains she died when she was 11 years old (can't find any record).

I do know that her then husband Frederick Severn came to Australia in 1921/22 and she did not come with him or join him later so can only assume they seperated or she may have passed away.

Can anyone advise where I might look from here. Being in Australia makes it difficult.

Thanks Cathy
