This looks like the family in 1911 - Alice is a widow; she has filled in the columns relating to marriage and children: m 29 years (but that could be either to 1911 or to when George died: also something odd with the number of children: 3 born alive; 3 still living, none died but there are 4 on the census:

See what you mean about the 1911 census Potty :-) There are five children if you count Mary A (from 1901) :-S
