By 1911 the family was living at 71 Vale Rd, St Leonards. The parents were still lodging house keepers, but Henrietta (now known as Grace) was a milliner, John (now called Jack) was a solicitor’s clerk and Louis (now called Victor) was still at school.

At the time of John W P Sutton’s death, the family was living at 43 Alma Terrace, Silverhill
