Looking on the 1911 census index, these are all in the same household as Jane Emms.

HOUSEHOLD YOUNG ADA F 1890 21 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG BENJAMIN M 1885 26 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG ETHEL F 1893 18 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG GEORGE M 1875 36 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG GEORGE M 1848 63 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG JANE F 1853 58 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG MAUD F 1898 13 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG ROSE F 1898 13 Woolwich London
HOUSEHOLD YOUNG WILLIAM M 1895 16 Woolwich London

George b 1848 comes up as head, so presumably Jane b1853 is his wife and the daughter of Jane Emms.

No marriage coming up for Jane Emms to George Young, so possibly her mother had remarried?

Jane the mother-in-laws remarriage....

Oops I forgot to post sources.

The marriages I posted above are from posted above by Reggie....available for anyone to search, for free, for birth, death and marriage registrations from the 3rd quarter 1837 to around 1960.
