Sadly, her father died when she was about three and she was brought up by her mother and grandmother. On the 1901 census she is living at 34 Mount Road with Susannah Smoothy, her grandmother, and Ada her mother, along with her two aunts Esther and Bessie.

When Ada remarried in 1902 to David Poole, Florence stayed with her mother and stepfather and on the 1911 census all three are living at 11 Chauntry Row, Haverhill. Florence is a dressmaker and her parents are both hair cloth weavers.

What happens to Florence after this is unclear. be continued
