Said to be married in both the census and on DC, but I can't find her marriage in Ireland nor E&W.

There was a marriage of a spinster by that name in 1896 aged 22 (so also born abt.1874).

Finding his Service number hasn't helped at all,unable to find anything else about John Campbell. Would there be a newspaper report regarding the inquest?

I have not been very successful following Georges clues, but I think he must be right and the death cert should say Wife of Private 901 Area...

The pension ledge is a dependant's claim from his mother, Mrs Cotter of Barrett Buildings, Cork.

Been looking.. trying to trace possible sister

The Catherine in Anglesborough in 1911 appears to have been born 15/9/1878 (transcribed record on ancestry).  So she was actually 32 at the census not 34. Father Denis, mother Margaret - mother nee Hogan. Does not get us very far.
