Snap.

Drew,

Have you looked for then on the 1911 census, just using the index there is a Ellen Platt born 1869 in Swindon, also putting in John as other members as household brings this one up.

Thank you for your kind help.i was looking for Ellen Augell,as per Lilys birth cert,it goes to show that even they can be wrong.

Once again many thanks.
