Matlock, thanks,

Does this look right ?

I wasn't looking for a man that old, he must have been about 44 when he died

That second list/1911 census gives address as: 42 Brasenose Road, Kirkdale, Liverpool

The older kids would be >/=16 at the date of his death in 1916 so wouldn't appear on a pension card

So catching a Susannah, aged 3 [born c.1908] along with an Ann [born c.1871] & a Charles [Labourer] does make it seem to be potentially looking quite promising.

The Pension card here shows children 

Susannah b 20/3/08

Isabella b 23/5/11

John Daniel b 11/4/14

The baptism record here and previous page show baptism of a Susannah on 11/9/11 but born 23/3/08 parents Charles and Annie plus Isabella b 23/5/11 same parents.

Address appears to be 38 Brasenose Rd. 

strongly indicates you are correct.

Thanks Mark

Looking at the 1901 census Annie was his 2nd wife, the mother this time is Eliza, a bit younger and born Widnes
