Could someone let me have the 1911 census details for this family please?
George Warnes born 1869,wife Alice born 1878 and children Ivy b 1911 and Doris b 1908.
They lived at 279 Victoria Park Road Hackney.
I have found the family group on the 1911 census site , but there are other people in the house too,so I don't know whether anyone else actually lived with this family or if the occupied different rooms in the house.
Thank you

Patchem and Shirley
Thank you both very much...Just what I wanted to know.
It is a bit confusing when you just see all the names together!
Shirley ,, interesting that your family lived there too...mostly knocked down now !
ThankS again

Thank you for the marriages. That certainly looks like Mr Linton's death

I thought maybe people just had a room each in a large house and not related in any way., but was wrong in this case
Incidentally , the house is still there!
