Mrs Marguerite Harrison

(Colchester Essex)

my Mum Isabel Wright (b. 1911) lived on Oxford lane and 1 Phoebe Lane. My aunties Mabel and Marion Wright lived a t 117 Whitegate Road and they were Sunday school teachers at St Marks Sunday school. Some people in their 60s and 70s may remember them! They were there in the 1960s
My mother worked at Macs in 1930s. Her marriage certificate listed her occupation as toffee wrapper. My dad worked at Mortons at one time. Most of my mums brothers and sisters got married at St Marks and my grandparents are buried in the cemetery towards Halifax. I have fond memories of returning to Siddal with mum in the 70s and 80s and hearing her stories of that little community.
