Thank you for this tip, it has solved one of my brick walls. The 1911 census revealed my great grandparents had 2 children with one deceased and my grandfather the surviving child. I could never trace the deceased child due to the very common surname and no other details of male, female, date span etc. With the ability to match the mother's maiden name (fortunately not so common) I found my child in a couple of minutes. Thank you to all who contribute to this site, I read it daily from 12,000 miles away in Australia.
