Did you use the generic “WreathProduct” constructor? This will create very 
general group objects, for which not many special methods exist. You might get 
better behavior if you construct the wreath product yourself as a finitely 
presented group.

What is this subgroup? (Does it have finite index?). To apply the homomorphism 
GAP needs to be able to decompose elements of the subgroup into a words in 
t0,t1 which could be difficult.

For initial experiments (just to see how objects get created)  it might be 
easier to replace F1 with a cyclic group of appropriate order and work in this 
finite image.
