The family appears to have been spread around after the death of John W Chandler. In 1911 Ena was living with her Uncle and two Aunts in London. Two of her sisters were at boarding school and two of the others were living with their mother in Lincolnshire.
Death 1987 (age 79-80)

Note on Marriage 1

When John Chandler died the remaining family seem to have been spread around. In 1911 the youngest daughter is living with Agnes's brother and 2 sisters in London. Agnes took two of the older sisters to live with her in Lincolnshire where she was a teacher. Muriel and Agnes Mary are at The Teachers Orphanage (Page Hall) in Sheffield. Jessie Claribell is found at the Grammar school in Thame, Oxfordshire.


More on the Teachers Orphanage can be found here - - it was funded by members of the teaching profession for those in the profession in Agnes Chandler's situation.1

Note on Marriage 2

Some confusion around the children - the 1911 census shows Jessie, Agnes Mary, Muriel, Constance, Doris and Ena.

The family records also show a Pauline of whom I can find no trace and Queenie - who may have been Agnes Mary.

Note on Wife: Agnes TURNBULL

Possible death record - Q4 1943 E. Elloe. (Lincolnshire)
