    Is it likely a married woman would say single?

    I am looking for somebody in the census records and think I may have found her but she is saying single and employed as a servant her husband is elsewhere on the same census year would she have lied to get the job maybe ?

    Quite possibly.
    I remember my great gran b 1908 was in service, once she married she had to leave.

    My avatar is great great granny Annie Pugh, possibly christened 24 Feb 1858.

        It may not have been her who filled in the form - perhaps her employer just didn't know she was married? On the other hand the ennumerator may have just filled in Single for all servants by mistake.
