      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.
