Lizzie Fletcher, a minor music hall comedienne and singer, whose career appears to have begun in the mid 1890s and ended about 1910, is known for songs such as 'Sister Ria,' dating from 1895, about a Salvation Army lass who joined the ballet at the Empire, and 'If You Want to Know Any More, Ask the Driver.'
