I think the reason that Beatrice is not down with her mum in 1911-1927 as ladies aged 21 and under weren't able to vote until 1928.

Mind you that doesn't account for the years from 1927-1935 !!

The Midland Electoral Roles, where the info for the occupants of Tindal Road came from, aren't online for every ward for every year. So its possible that they where at the same address, but not available on line.

Nobody under the age of 21 was able to vote until 1969

Should you female relatives be missing from Electoral Register, remember

**Females were not allowed to vote until 1918 and had to be aged 30 years or over .
In 1928 this age was lowered to 21 years of age.
In 1969 the age was lowered to 18 years of age.

So Lynda Beatrice could be living with Mum.

**Exception made to some females who owned property of a certain value.

Electoral Registers on a well known website for the Midlands are up to years 1955.

For Birmingham there is another pay to view website ( not a Family History website) Registers are up to year 1960 for Birmingham.

All online.
