    • GRO ref: Boyce, Mary q2 1921 aged 79 St.Olave [Bermondsey] RD 1d 91
      There were Mary Boyce's born around the same time who died after 1911, but based on location this is clearly the most likely.
      (Abode at time of death or who registered the address, i.e. info from the death cert, could well confirm or at least add more evidence pointing to this Mary).

      Details from PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 28 Dec 2017)
      Since Henry had died by 1911, the information required for married women about length and children of the marriage was not needed and was struck through, but Mary had provided it. She said she had been married 42 years (which seems a mistake as it fits neither the time from the marriage to 1911 or to the death of Henry). She also shows what is more likely to be correct, that they had had 10 children, only 4 of whom were still living (the four living were all with her at the time of the 1911 census, as was granddaughter Maud Bentley).
      The 1911 census was 48 years from Mary's marriage, and just as Maud's mother had married and had children before dying, it is possible other children had too; it would not be safe to assume the other 5 had all died in infancy, although this was the most risky time.
      It seems probable that only 2 of the other 5 died as babies, but looking for a marriage and / or death for the others it seems probable that they died unmarried as young adults.
