Thanks everyone. The first reply is the correct family, which I had already found, and was reported in the 1911 census as consisting of 13 children, 8 of whom survived. I have the names of 12, but this 'May' eludes me. It may be that this was the name she was known by, and she eventually lived with Gladys. Thanks for all your efforts.
