Thanks for your suggestions, I will have a look.
I don't have much info on her parents yet, other than her fathers details on her marriage cert which says he was a soldier and deceased when she married in 1922

It depends where she was born Annette. There are some French records on ancestry worldwide and also on FamilySearch.

I take it her father wasn't in England for the 1911?

I've been doing some research on my husband's family and have found that his grandmother was born in France in 1900. I then found her on 1911 census and she was a pupil at a convent in Sussex. I was hoping to find her at home on the night, so I could find her mothers name, I already have her father's name from her marriage certificate.
Does anyone know how I can find her birth certificate?
