Looks like you Gran had 5children, all i the Swansea area.
Any idea what took her there?

Looks like bertha married a Mr Jervis, again in Swansea, maybe the whole family moved there.Looksl ike they had 4 children

Have you contacted others who have your ancestors in their trees on here? As relatives they may know of other family members and places of birth.
Is this Gertrude?
Births Dec 1881
STEED Gertrude Tendring 4a 415

Free bmd shows a possible marriage for her in Swansea, which you can find, and looks like her in Swansea in census before marriage.
