    that is a shame, so not even sure if we have the right person yet. Just thought someone may have known her birthday, or even the month.

    Did she write her name in the bible? and a date when she was given it? be interesting to see if she used Ethel or Daisy as her first name.

        It could be the baptism and census from London may not be your Ethel as she was going by Daisy Ethel and her birth month is correct but 25 not 7.

        Having said that anything is possible.

        I also wonder if she spent a lot of her years at Barnados she would see that as her 'from' place, I think of Barkingside as London now, but in those times maybe not so much.
