Good afternoon

Gertrude was born 13th July 1882 in Harrold Bedfordshire to Charles and Harriett Thompson.
She married Edward Oakley in Ashted, Birmingham on the 23rd April 1905
On the 1911 census Gertrude is with Edward and children living in Amblecote.
I am trying to find Gertrude before her marriage on the 1891 and 1901 censuses and wondered if someone would be able to have a look for me. I have looked on Ancestry without success.
Thank you
