There are a couple of possible deaths if her age at death was out by a few years: Oct-Dec 1886 Ecclesall Bierlow age 78 and Jul-Sep 1891 Sheffield age 82. But maybe we can find more likely candidates for those on the censuses?

There is an 82-year old Mary Frost, widow, in Handsworth in 1891 who is probably the one who died in 1891, but her birthplace is Wells Norfolk, and it isn't a mistake because she also appears on the 1881. And there is a Mary Frost age 72 visitor in Maltby in Rotherham on the 1881 who could be the one who died in 1886.

So forget those two deaths!

Kate, I've been looking at this one too as OH has a DNA match with someone who has in their tree Mary Ann Frost born 1851 at Wells, Norfolk. I think the Mary Frost, 82, that you found was the mother.

I can't see the connection with OH though.
