Individual Note

The trams went no further than St. Nicholas' Church Plumstead. Our little sister Christina May was buried in that Church-yard. My very earliest recollection was connected with her. I awoke, apparently in the middle of the night to find Mama making tea & a bright fire burning in the old fashioned grate. She gave me some tea & seeing the stars in the sky above the high wall I said "We are having tea with the stars". The new baby was there too. We "had the baby between us" for I was terribly jealous.1

The Stills.

Your Father lived all his young days on the banks of one busy river - the Mersey & I your Mother on the banks of another - the Thames - Liverpool & Woolwich. So in a way we had the same kind of outlook - we were town-bred.
This account was sent as a word document to Graham Hoadly by Marion Maud's grandson, Roger Tringham. He had trancribed it from the original in the possesion of his cousin.

He writes:

My Grandmother wrote her account in about 1940, so there may be occasional lapses of memory.
