The other thing is her daughter doesn't appear to have married. There is a probate for her 1947, maybe someone can check it out? Or is it too late?

Interestingly she died in Portsmouth:

What about this? I know the age is wrong so it would have to be an error. But it might help to get Samuel's will as Gins suggested, so at least you know where she was living.

It does say: Administration (with Will) Derby 5

Not sure what the 5 stands for? It could be that his wife is left something in the Will, so maybe a copy of that would shed some light

Does the probate mean Samuel left everything to Kathleen Abbott ? And nothing to his wife?

Samuel died in Sept. 1912, the above record is correct for him, not sure about the other one, if she had died in 1913, she would have been 65, not 70.

I did wonder about this, although middle initial is wrong. Do you have a death for Samuel? I see he was 10 years older than Mary according to 1911 census.

Can anyone help me find a death record for my great grandmother Mary Agnes Abbott, she is still alive in the 1911 census, at the age of 63, living with her husband Samuel in Alfreton, Derbyshire, but I can't find any record of when she died. Thanks.
