Ethel Gyte was born in , England.
Ethel Gyte is one of twins.
Ethel Gyte died young.

Ethel was one of several children I came across when reaching a family grave in Wombwell Cemetry. I applied for death certificates to identify the children that are not named on the gravestone and was shocked to find that my grandmother was mother to two of them. My grandmother, Emily Gyte, had a total of fourteen children. Twelve of them survived to adulthood, and most of them I remember. I also remember two of my great aunts. I had never heard anyone mention the twins that my grandmother had when she was sixteen year old. I feel certain that my mother, aunts and uncles did not know anything about their twin sisters.

Ethel was born at 8.20pm on the 17th October 1894, 20 minutes after her twin sister Edith Gyte, at 27 George Street, Wombwell, Yorkshire, the home of their grandfather, Abraham Gyte. [1][2][3]

The twins lived with their mother, at their grandfather home in Wombwell, Yorkshire for all of their short lives.

Edith passed away on the 24th September 1895, age 11 months.[4][5] The cause of her death was Diarrhoea for 3 days. Her mother was present when she died. She was buried in the family grave at Wombwell Cemetery, Wombwell, Yorkshire on 26 September 1895.[6]

Ten days later, on the 4th October 1895, Ethel passed away, age 11 months.[7][8] The cause of Ethel's death was Infantile Diarrhoea for 8 days. Again her mother was present when she died. She was buried alongside her sister on the 6th October 1895 at Wombwell Cemetery, Yorkshire. [6]
