The only Clifford in the 1911 workhouse census p77 was Bridget Clifford, widow aged 73, charwoman, born Limerick, Ireland’. She was probably at Horace St, Marylebone in the 1901 census, widow, 62, charwoman, b Ireland (ref RG13/111 f39 p12). Details of her birth, marriage and death are unavailable at this time.
