I am trying to find information about Martha Ashfield born in Brentford in 1872. Did she marry, when did she die, where is she buried. Stories in our family is that she was called 'Aunt Min'. I have census records for 1881 & 1891.

Thanks everyone - I do not think Martha is "Aunt Min". Martha did have a sister Mary Ann born 1854 and died 1947(?). I think she may have been a spinster and worked as a cook/house keeper. Perhaps she is "Aunt Min". What do you think?

Not for us to speculate.

Have you found Mary Ann on the censes ?
Did it give her occupation as Cook/ Housekeeper?

Thanks. I found the 1901 cesus for Mary Ann and then nothing else.

Thanks for all the help.
