Well this lady was well and truly elusive. she lived with her cousin as his wife after being widowed and then married him . He died and then she entered into an illegal marriage with his brother who was her sisters wdower!!

Been going around in circles for several years. and wrong death certs bought!, to find her after 1911

One genes member did suggest a Lincolnshire death that I dismissed .

Sorry to that member cos later info found she moved with her eldest daughter from Hackney London to Lincolnshire after the 1911 census and that death was her when I got the cert

well done ,cant remember who the member was BUT the info was correct

I have many years experience of genealogy searching but we can still learn !! :-D :-D :-D
