The Head of Household who filled in the form was the brother of Keith's Great Grandfather, Henry Shackleton, who was also a hairdresser in Burnley.
It would seem that John Shackleton misunderstood the instructions and instead of reporting those members of the family who were present on Census day, reported his whole family, wherever they were -Alice - a medical missionary in China and William, Arthur and Ethel who were all dead!!! What a gem!!!! Thanks for sharing Keith
