    cheers Edmund for supplying the 1911 census,in between putting the thread on sh & you putting the census on I did a bit of digging myself I found a lena nelson living on Sheffield road tinsley born in 1896 & died in 1957 I still wasn't quite sure if was the right one until I saw your census.i think safe to say she was unmarried,& inherted the shop from her mother.

    lena ran a workmans café at 708,brightside lane in the 1950/60s it stood next a newsagents & next to that was the "river don" public house don't know if she ever married but she is on the 1953 electrol register on her own.can anyone trace her on the 1911 census? all the buildings were cleared in in the late 1950/60s for the new esc works
