    Time in Asylum 
    • The index of admissions to lunatic asylums shows that Ada was admitted in 1908, and remained there until her death in 1959.

      The identity of the patients was protected in the 1911 census by recording them only by their initials. However, although there were 2 'A G's aged 33, both female, one was of unknown occupation and birthplace, and recorded as a 'lunatic at 32'. Ada was only 30 when admitted, and so the other 'A G' - born Liverpool, formerly a dressmaker, 'lunatic at 30'.
    Occupation Dressmaker 
    • Recorded as such in the 1939 registration, though whether she did this in the asylum or only prior to her entry I don't know. Many entries have 'unknown', implying that some at least refer to occupations prior to entry and Ada was described as 'formerlya dressmaker' in the 1911 census so I would guess that it was an occupation she only followed before entry.
