She could have placed in hospital in Valetta.
Back then, orphanage were in hospital.
Also in couvent, or in her extend family

Before searching where this sister where would have been placed, you have to searched the "standard" information.

- Where do George go when his mother died ? He was minor, so it would have been also placed
- "Brown", i supposed it's her married name, an english one.
- What happened to the father ?
- George was baptized ? Catholic ? Anglican ?
- George born in Malta ?
- Carmela were married to whom ? Married in Malta ?

I think the first goal is to find all children of Carmela BROWN in order to know the name and the aged of this sister.

- Carmela’s maiden name was Cachia. 
- Frederick Brown married Carmela in 1882 in Vittoriosa 
Frederick was a British sailor who was in the Royal Navy. He was away at sea most of the time. He was pensioned back in England by 1897. 
- George was born in Malta in 1884 and baptized as Catholic in Vittoriosa
- when his mom died, George supposedly was looked after by relatives in Turkey and then went to England to live with grandparents (his fathers parents)  

 I have the birth certificate of my grandfather George Brown. I have not been able to find any records of a daughter born. I have emailed the parish in Birgu but get no responses.
