The picture to the left here shows Robert being poured a pint by Harry Sayles, landlord of the Hare Arms (and before you ask, noone in my family was ever landlord there!!!!)
My mum knew Robert well. She told me that he loved fishing and smoking his pipe. She remembered him as being "a nice old man".
I love this family group on the left c 1927. Robert is far right. Albert on the left, the three sisters Daisy, Emma, and Nell seated in the middle. The three children are from left to right, Daisy's daughter Marjorie, my mum, and my uncle Ray. I note that Eliza isn't present. The photographer? Only one person it can be!
Robert looked after his wife Eliza for the last years of her life, until she died in 1933. He then outlived her by ten years. He died in 1943. They are buried together in Stow Bardolph churchyard.
