MAPPING WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE 1911
A Snapshot in time
10 Clifton Street, Wolverhampton
Maud Gertrude was born in 1888, the daughter of Dominic and Mary Clara Dilger immigrants from Baden, Germany. An occupation for her is not listed on the 1911 census. Maud along with her sisters joined the Wolverhampton branch of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, collected subscriptions and delivered society notices on the Tettenhall Road. Whether she was the 'Miss Dilger' who wrote a 1914 play for the suffrage society to raise funds (see Lucy Dilger for full account) is not clear. However, we do know that Maud married Cecil H. Wood in Conway in 1920, and they had a son, Dennis J. C. Wood, born in Wolverhampton in 1923. Maud died in Wandsworth in 1966. Contributed by Heidi McIntosh, Senior Archivist, Wolverhampton Archives.
