Dennis Hadfield and his wife Marjorie (I think) were good friends of my mum and dad. They lived in the row of cottages next to the Shed (Johnson Street?).
They moved up to the Shallcross Estate into the last house on the way to Shallcross Manor; although I think the Manor may have been demolished just before then. They moved in after the Bailey family left.

Dennis had an aviary there in which he kept budgerigars.

They had 2 beautiful daughters; the youngest married David Lockett of the painting family. I do not remember what happened to the eldest girl and I can't just recall their names just now.

Are you a younger son Keith?

Left by Gnatalee on the 1st April 2016

Hi Gena - My grandmother was Lucy Jane Jones (nee Bradley), Lucy was one of the sisters of Lily Swindells (nee Bradley) who was Harry Swindells' mother. Bradleys were rather a large family !

For Gnatalee - my grandma was Dinah Depledge and she was Lucy and Lily's sister. She died in 1940 so I didn't know my grandma but I remember auntie Lucy very well.
