    Mina Miller was born about 1859. Cannot find any records for her birth. She appears on the 1861 Census for Robert and Caroline Miller, Camberwell, Surrey, aged 2 born Walworth, Surrey (which adjoins Camberwell).
    Nothing then until 1881 when she is with her parents, Robert & Caroline, in Richmond, Surrey working as a Dressmaker.
    After 1881 again no trace.
    Would like to complete her life story, so would appreciate any help.
    Thanks

    Could she be the Minnie Elizabeth MILLER, mother's maiden name FRY, whose birth is registered in the Dec. Q of 1858, Newington?

    Newington covers Walworth.

    If you look for Robert and Caroline in the 1851 census they have a visitor, Mary FRY, aged 56, born Bridgewater, Somerset - the same place as Caroline, so possibly her mother.

    Thanks, that's the one, (as I'm also following FRY)
    Still missing her whereabouts in the 1851 Census and then after the 1881 Census which is the last trace of her when she was living with her parents Robert and Caroline in Richmond.
    I've also looked for any marriage in the Richmond District on FreeBMD but nothing.

    Thanks I'll look that up. If checks out that just leave any trace after 1881 Census.

    I cannot find Mina/Minnie in 1891 or 1901. I did check sister Josephine (mar. Walter Brooke), in case she was with her, but she was not.

    It looks as though Emma Wright was a Milliner, so maybe Minnie was there seeing about possible work - or learning the trade.
