Searching missing LEVIN/E family #unitedkingdom

Hi Apologies for a long post - I'm trying to search for my great aunt daughters descendants and have hit a brick wall so hoping this group can help. Here's what I know... my great aunt was Sarah Levine and to the best of my knowledge that was both her single and married name. The story started in a book my ggf Rabbi Lewis Levin/e wrote published in 1910 (Hikre lev: ... heker ve-daat. (Examination of the Heart) Published: London: Naroditski, 1910) In this he pays tribute to his nephew saying My soul mourns and my eyes shed tears for the death of my nephew, the great scholar Avram Leib. He left the Beth-Midrash and emigrated to the landof England, and after some years in Liverpool married a woman from a good home from the city of Llanelli, near Swansea, he was married just for a year and became a father after his death. He died on Sarurday night the 8thof Tammuz 5669 (=June 26th 1909) aged 24 and was buried in Swansea. I have solved this actual branch but from Abraham's marriage authorisation found that his father was named Vigdor (Victor) a teacher. In a later book Ha-Teva veha-nes, kolel shene derushim, (Nature and Miracles)Published :London: Tshernitski, 1920. Alongside other family members he says he wishes to congratulate his modest 'Ayshet Chayil' sister Sarah Levine and blessings for her daughter, son in law and grand children. I have now found a 1911 English census record for Liverpool for Sarah and a Flora Levine. This makes complete sense as my other family are in Liverpool and more importantly on the census they have actually written that they came from Zabbelin (Izabelin, Belarus) which we know was their place of origin. I have my ggf family in Liverpool in 1901 and also in 1901 I have found a possible census record for Sarah and Abraham but no mention of Flora. The ages are about right as are the occupations. What I can't find is any mention of Victor but on both census Sarah says she is married not widowed. I'm also struggling to find a marriage for Flora. I have found one in Bradford which I have ordered a certificate for. If anyone can help with this that would be great. Book titles given as if anyone reads Hebrew some of the books are available on Hebrewbooks.org and I'm working from very kind translations I have received over the years
