Do you know Speight family butchers?

May I, through your column, ask your readers for some help regarding the Speight family who were butchers in Cleckheaton.

Daniel Speight and Jane Abraham were married in the last quarter of 1876 and they had four children. Annie, Ethel, Henry (Harry) who moved in Ireland, and Frank.

I’m trying to trace and descendants of Annie.

I know that she married Edgar Woodhead in July 1899 and they had a son called Harold Edgar Woodhead.

The census for both 1901 and 1911 show Annie living in Lower Green Avenue with her family. The 1911 shows Annie as being employed as a elementary teacher and she is living with her son, brother and mother.
