Iam trying to locate the 1911 census for the family of a

Thomas Coen
Elizabeth b 1885c wife
Michael Patrick b 1910 Nov son

The family lived in Brook Street Ballina Co Mayo Ireland, Thomas Coen and Elizabeth Fallon married in 1909 and there is a Baptism record for child Michael Patrick born in Brook Street. 1910. I cant locate the family in 1911 and wondered if anyone can find them, its possible they may have gone to England Scotland etc i know they were back in Brook Street Ballina in 1914 birth for child Winifred registered. I dont know age of Thomas Coen full age and his address on marriage was Brook Street, father Michael I cant locate him in 1901 census either.

I have seen the surname Coen as Coan also.

Thank you.

I don't see them in 1911 in England, Wales, Scotland or Ireland, with any spelling, I'm afraid.

Elizabeth was born c1889.
Her mother Mary Anne Fallon, and siblings , were still in Brook Street in 1911.

But there were no Coens:

Nor in Castle Road:
