Weekly Puzzle - Miss Trindle (Nurse)

On 19 March 1920, Miss Trindle age 39, a nurse whose last residence was Rangoon in Burma (now Yangon, Myanmar) , disembarked from the Lancashire (1) in London.

No first name is given.  So Miss Trindle was born between 20 Mar 1880 and 19 Mar 1881.  She was not an alien, but that means only that she was born within the British Commonwealth.  Was she born in Burma or India?  Was she born in England or some other country?

The assumption is that she probably went to Burma during the Great War as a nurse and was returning to England as the final troops were being recalled.

Can anyone give her a first name?

The 1921 census, which might help if we search for a female Trindle age 40 who is a nurse, will not be released until 2022.  A search of the 1911 census yielded one 1881 birth, Eliza in Wales.  There was also a Catherine born in 1883 in Surrey, but it seems unlikely that she would make herself older.  The same is true for Edith bn 1883 in London in 1911.  Dorothea bn 1883 also in London in 1911 appears to have died in 1919 so is out of the picture.  Are one of these three woman Miss Trindle the nurse?
