GR 1911 Census shows that Alice COX lived on Cinderford High Street. Unfortunately few on that street included the house number or name in the postal addresses. However, the next entry (going northwards, I think) is,

Moses HARRIS, Head, 62, Innkeeper, b. East Dean, Gloucester

The BNA Gloucester Journal , Saturday 19 May 1917, reported details of the will of Moses HARRIS of the Globe Inn, Cinderford. Other, earlier, entries confirm his residence. The Globe is marked on this map,

The chances are that Alice ran a small beer house or maybe even an off-licence on Cinderford High Street. The Gloucestershire Pubs site has a decent entry for the Globe and also lists a couple of un-named and un-located premises at least one of which was on the High Street. Maybe it was located in one of the houses to the right in this picture. The Globe is the red building set back from the road – you can just make out the West Country Brewery plaque still in place. It is now a veterinary practice.
