Have you got the marriage certificate as you know who she married and who her father was? If so, could you post all details from that certificate please and anything else you might know.
How have you got back to Edith and Albert?

As you have access to Ancestry, you should be able to search for the families before the marriage

Also, the 1911 is currently FREE on GR and FMP

Stuart Report 14 Nov 2012 15:22

If you have seen the transcript as posted above then you had more details of the family than you initially said, which would have saved us time looking. please give all information that you know to help us help you.

A very useful site - for free, will give you bmd's from 1837 through to approx. 1950 as it is still being added to
