I have been trying to find Reginald Jefferies born 1893 Frome, Somerset on the 1911 census, without any success. Any help in finding him would be appreciated. In 1901 he is living with his family at 59, Christchurch Street East, Frome, Somerset,( father Mark Jefferies , mother Florence nee Curley)
Also, can't make out the word before stables on the 1901 census, can you help?
Thanks,
Les

Thank you for all the Canadian information, I had been told by my Dad (William) that they were in Canada for a short time but never really told any details, I suppose he didn't know much as he was only young when they went there.
