Eliza Abel was born in Birmingham about 1872. She married Thomas Richards in Dec quarter 1891.
Eliza is my family and unfortunately at the moment I do not know anything about Thomas Richards.

Please can someone see if they can find them on the 1901 census for me.

Thank you

Might be worth checking out the Bearwood Road address on googlemap streetview, as many of the old houses are still there.

I will add htat to my tree as well. I think I must also buy some certs just to confirm that I am correct.

All the best
