    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.
