I cannot find the following lady in 1911 and would be grateful for another pair of eyes.

Mabel Annie Rowswell b June qtr 1888 Bridgewater reg dist.

1891 with family living in Shepton Beauchamp...surname spelt Rouswell

1901 with family Rowswell living in Shenley Hertfordshire

By 1911 the family had moved to Kent and this is her parents and younger siblings

She went on to marry Theodore Fryer in 1924 Lambeth reg dist and died 1937 Rochford reg dist.


I have tried all sorts of combinations, but can't seem to find her in 1911. I have had a look on passenger lists on FMP (incase she popped off somewhere and came back) but can't see her there either.

Any help will be most welcome.
