      Info From Betty Woolley
      "My lovely auntie, always happy, loved everyone, loved life and incredibly talented with her many crafts."

      Info From Ian Prescott (2016)
      "Hannah seems to think that one of them (Jack or Florence) was buried at Abram St John the Evangelist but I have not been able to confirm this from the parish records. I suspect that both of them were also cremated at the aforementioned Crematorium (Wigan Ince Crematorium)."

      Info From Jean Davies (2016)
      She came out to Australia on holiday for about 12 weeks in the late 70s after Dad died.
      "She found hidden money in all his suit jackets. He was saving up for a trip to come here after his retirement but he died at 64.5. So she came early the following year. After we had been on train trip to Townsville."
