By 1911, Thomas Robert (a commercial traveller) had resumed his place at the head of the household. No occupation given for the mother. Additional information that they'd been married 21 years. The size of the family remained the same, although they had been joined by Ellen Florence Trowbridge, a 10 year old boarder born in Forest Hill. The two older sisters are schoolteachers. Montague's sisters' birthplaces are also given as Forest Hill, while his says Hither Green (still Lewisham, of course). Home is 2 Ryecroft Road, Lewisham.
