ErikaH, I didn't ignore you, I don't ignore anyone, there is a lot of info put up on here some of it matches my family history so I'm sifting through it all.
I shall try to confirm what is on here as mine, it might not be in any particular order but I thank you all for what you have found for me.

ErikaH the 1901 census is mine people on it, that's the puzzleing bit really why isn't John George on it if in fact he didn't die and if he did die how is it that he is on the 1911 census. XX.

It was Stephen Nelson who filled in the 1911 form.

I wonder if he misunderstood what was required, and entered John George as one of his children even though he had died in infancy.

However, there is an occupation also entered for John George (labourer, shipyard) which seems very odd if JG was dead .

Re the different numbers of children -
he had at first written, in pencil on Caroline's line, 7 children, 6 living, one deceased.
Then he'd written the same on his own line in ink - then scored that out and overwritten on Caroline's line - 8 children, 7 living, 1 deceased.
I don't understand why, unless he had confused himself with having entered JG on the form.

I think you need to buy the 1892 death cert to confirm whether or not that's Stephen and Caroline's son.

I have the birth and death certificates and they do have Caroline and Stephen as confirmation on. He John George is the mystery, I might just have to leave it that way.
