I live in the United States and am trying to find information on my mother-in-law's family who is from England.

Going by the census's and information found on Ancestry.com, Augustus and Sarah SHEAD had the following children who all but one child, Augustus William, appear to be have been born in the Greater London, London, Middlesex County, Stepney District -

Emmeline Maud SHEAD died 27 Sep 1919 in London County, Mile End Old Town. Emmeline and Alfred HENDLE had the following children.

i. Maud Agnes HENDLE, b. 03 July 1899, London County,
Mile End; d. 27 Sep 1968, Eastcote.

ii. Florence May HENDLE, b. 19 Oct 1900, London County, Mile End; d. Feb. 1931, Old Ford.
