I'm having trouble making sense of the 1930 census. Hilda plus 2 adult children are shown at one address, with Hilda as a widow. A William Ashworth b 1875, carpenter, says married @ 21, owns home is at another location. Of note is that William is the 2nd from last person on the census for that ward. Usually that's where people who were missed 1st time around are counted in census. Maybe it's a different William; maybe they were separated/divorced & Hilda preferred to say she was a widow?
