Summary

Born in Aston, she married and died young. In the 1911 census, Edward (her late husband) indicated they had 7 children, of whom only 3 were still alive in 1911.

Notes

Fanny may well have died at the abode of a relative, as she, her husband, and children had been living in Four Oaks, which is about 7 miles away.

Although Fanny's death seems clear, there is the puzzle of Clarence Cross recorded in the 1911 census (see record for Edward). This uncertainty can only be removed by reviewing the death and birth certificates concerned.
