    Margaret ....a group photograph taken somewhere (again on holiday). The only family members on it are Grandma, who is the lady in the grey hat two down from the 109 and Uncle Harry is the boy in front with the cap on and his arms folded, and Uncle Ernie is the little boy peeping over his shoulder, whilst Aunty Alice is the girl on the right eating toffee or crisp and watching the lady give her little boy a good hiding. They don't make em like they used to!!

  • Notes 
    • Margaret recalls
      Fanny was in domestic service at some point in her life. When she married Charles Henry Birchall (Birchenough) she lived in Union Street in Sandbach where the first two of their children were born. The family then moved to Wigan so that Charles could remain in employment with the Railway. More children arrived and one little thing that Gertie, their second daughter used to vividly recall, was the fact that the children always knew when their parents had 'fell out' because Charlie would bring Fanny a Creamy Whirl (a chocolate cone filled with cream with a walnut at the bottom).
