I think you missed this query - have you any idea how long she carried on living in the house?

Yes she would have been in the 70's. Unfortunately my Dad and his sister both passed last year. When I told my mum that I truly believe Nin was Minnie she was surprised as she had never heard her referred to as anything other Nin. I do have one aunt left and perhaps she might know something. Not sure how I would find out if she left a will any ideas. It still remains a mystery however why a death record cant be found. If as was suggested she is Minnie who married Arthur in 1915 they may have must have split up and she lived with the Flemings from the 1940's. Never heard before that she could have been married but I guess its highly possible.

To confirm about Minnie Alice Champion yes this was the one I found.

She lived with Kitty while both were alive. Online can only find electoral roles up till 1963. I do know they moved to a flat in the 70's. Probably because the old propertys were going to be refurbished they were moved to newer homes. They were still in the Tottenham area. I think Kitty died first and Nin went into a home I will check again with my mum if she can remember.

Just went over all the threads Minnie Trevithic Champion nee Thomas died in 1974 so this is definitely not her. I still think my Minnie was a spinster when she died unless another marriage can be found about the same period.

Each case is different of course, but my mother used to tell me of visiting my Dad's maiden aunt in Sussex, even telling me of the type of clothes aunt wore.
By all accounts she was the typical spinster daughter, who stayed at home to look after her parents.
She did live at home, but I was surprised to find by research ( and certificates) that she had married and by extended family anecdotes that let's just say she 'led an interesting life in a sea-going community '.

Suprises do happen.
