Her father and siblings:

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1855
Relation to Head: Head

N.B. Alice is not likely to be Florence's mother as Edward and Alice only been married for 14 years. It is of course possible that Florence is not Edward's daughter but Alice's daughter from a previous marriage or relationship.

According to the 1911 census Edward and Alice M had been married 14 years but I haven't found a marriage yet c1897

Jonesey

Jonesey Report 22 Feb 2013 17:40

I suspect that Edward and Alice did not actually marry until later than they stated in the 1911 census. As you know divorce was not easily available for most due to cost. Perhaps one or the other of them was still married and therefore could not marry until their existing partner died.

I would take a look at this marriage in 1912 however as it looks a good possibility:

Marriages Sep 1912
Cork Alice M Holmes Norwich 4b 234
Holmes Edward Cork Norwich 4b 234
