Bio: Ellen was the youngest child of John and Emily Whiting. Born in 1883, she features on the 1891 census as a child living in Little Wratting with her parents and siblings Susan, George, Albert and William.

Ellen appears on the 1901 census living at home in Little Wratting aged 18 and her occupation is given as school teacher.

We lose track of Ellen after this point. She doesn't appear on the 1911 census. A search of the burial registers for the local church reveal she died aged 22 in June 1905.(3) It's not clear what she died of, but she was buried in St Mary's, Little Wratting, on 17th June 1905.(4)
