I'm trying to find information on Lellie Bebell c1901.

On the 1911 census it states she was living in Croyden Surrey, with I John Bavin c1851 & his wife Catherine c1849.

Lellie was put down as a Nurse Child ( what was that !!!) also I think Lellie was a nickname.

I can't find her in the birth records.

Can anyone help me please.

A nurse child means that she was being 'looked after' by people other than her parents.

I googled it and it looks as though "Nurse child" is like a foster child.

Thanks Dea

Sorry for not thanking you sooner.

I have been trying to confirm Lellie Bebell & Lillian Beble are the same.

Owing to the discrepency of the surname spelling, I've contacted The General Register of BMD & applied for her birth & marriage certificates.

I wouldn't have been able to do this without your help.

Thank you
Elsa
