I am researching the surname of Flint and trying to find Elsie born 1894 birth registration Prestwich Lanc's Mother Jaquet Jane, father Dewes 1901 living in north manchester with the family. 1911 census no trace would have been 17 nothing shows up in marriage or death records from 1901 to 1911.

Can anyone help by suggesting where else to look? According to 1911 census her mother had 12 children eight still alive found 7 but not Elsie
