Florence Ashforth (née Florence Flowers 1876-1973)
Sister to Annie Matilda Rodger(s) (née Annie Matilda Flowers 1864-Deceased)
Hillsborough Park, Sheffield

It has taken me almost 6 months to find time to finally publish my transcription of the England and Wales Census 1901 return showing my great grandmother Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973) living with her sister Annie Matilda RODGER(S) (née Annie Matilda FLOWERS 1864-Deceased) at 8 Poplar Street in the parish of Nether Hallam, Sheffield.

Here is my transcription:

So this leads me down new avenues of research. I have yet to add the RODGER(S) family to my GEDCOM.

Notes:
Further research leads me to believe the surname is more likely RODGERS.

It is interesting that my great grandmother Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973) is recorded as being married and living at the address; I would have expected her to be a visitor. Perhaps there was a family issue, or I think what is more likely is Henry RODGERS had recently passed away, leaving Annie Matilda with a very young child, and perhaps Florence is helping out. At some point I will try and spend a little time researching this curious situation.

Updates:
2016-11-03 In this post "Register of Inmates, Ecclesall Bierlow Workhouse" I discovered Florence ASHFORTH (née Florence FLOWERS 1876-1973) together with her youngest son Ernest Ashforth 1905-1990 registered as inmates at the Ecclesall Bierlow Workhouse.

I can only surmise that during the period circa 1900-1905 something had happened to her husband William Henry ASHFORTH 1873-1926. Unfortunately I will probably never know.
He died in 1926 at the relatively early age of 52 years.
