We're going to need some more information about her. I suspect that were quite a few Lillian Pearces around a century ago and that you didn't pluck a name out of thin air?

 

Nationality? Links to towns/cities/villages?  Civilian, servicewoman, voluntary worker?

 

What's piqued your interest in her?

It's a process of elimination...

Could be this one, if she was married before 1914.

You'll need at least one other piece of information to be able to confirm or deny if this is what you are looking for.

I suspect that it's Agnes Lilian (with only one 'l') Pearce of 7 Hannah St, Barry. Worked at Barry Island War Hospital. 

She was a VAD, and if I wasn't accessing this through my phone I'd post a link to her record card from the Red Cross Society archives..... 

She was a nurse, worked at Barry Island hospital from 1914 to 1919. Not a lot more info on the card.

Just noticed that it is the same person whose details Alan posted (above). 

Think I might have managed it....

What's the story with her? You have her St John's medal?

I was hoping for information on her 1st W.W. Service. If she spent all the war at home. Looking at her Period Of Service at Barry Hospital.  Thank you all for your help.     Lyn.

Just had a look at the 1911 census for 7 Hannah Street on FMP.

We did both have the same person...which was a bit of a long shot on my part!

1911 Census 7 Hannah St.

 

Thomas Pearce 34 married 4 years, Gas services layer, b. Gibraltar 

Lillian Pearce 27 b. London [1884]

 

I was a little concerned that the card showed 'Miss' but this is clearly wrong. 

The fact she worked 2 days per week may also indicate a married woman who had other duties. 

 

Unfortunately, with her maiden name of Smith and born London, any further research on her early life may be difficult. 

 

But here's a possible...

Your long shots appear to be paying off...! Any tips for next year's Grand National? 

 

Agree with what you say about the part-time nature of her work.
