This is my great aunt Lilian WEEDEN, sister to my grandad Richard, and great aunt Ada. She was born in 1896 in Bermondsey. I love this photo of her(on left) as she looks so elegant and fashionable.

She was part of our family Summers and Christmases all through early childhood and I was very upset when news of her death, at her home in Lewisham, came at the end of the Christmas holiday, brought by a policeman to our festive door. I felt especially guilty as, when she was too unwell to come for Christmas, I'd swapped her intended present for a cheap piece of jewellery....which she never received anyway. R.I.P great aunt Lil.
