Amalia Kritzer (27), daughter of Wilhelm Kritzer and Flora Gleichauf, in 1901, was employed as a Lady's Maid in the household of spinster sisters, Mary and Adela Rain at 20, Alexander Square, Kensington, a garden square in London's Chelsea, SW3. (Like the private communal gardens seen in Notting Hill.) 

In 1911, she's again working as Lady's Maid for a 3rd sister, Elizabeth Rain at 19 Pelham Place, Kensington. (The two older Rain sisters were born in France and the latter in Ireland, so the family don't appear on any census in England until we find them, living with their father, Stephen Rain, in the similarly upmarket Egerton Gardens, in 1891, where he was 'Living on own Means', but - I'm curious - haven't discovered from what source that wealth emanated.) 

Amalie Kritzer, spinster, of 125 Beaufort St, Chelsea, London died, aged 60, on 4 Oct 1934. She left £1267 5s 8d (worth £91,275 in 2020). Probate was granted to Mortimer Rooke and Alexander Herbert Macdonald, solicitors.
