Visitor's Name: Beryl Zillah Wilson (nee Jackson)
Mum and Dad.
They married in 1925 when mum was 29 years and dad was 40. She moved to Liverpool to work in Munitions during WWI and later to learn the tailoring trade where she became a tailoress. This is where she met my dad, who was a Journeyman Tailor at that time. I don't know how he came to be in Liverpool unless the work there was more plentiful. I 'found' him on the 1901 census living in Nottingham with his mother's sister. He was 17 then and occupation was Tailor Improver, so he obviously moved from Little Gonerby to Nottingham to learn the trade there.
She was always very kind and helpful to anyone in need, yet at times was very needy herself, but never complained about it.
She had three daughters, Blanche, Beryl and Brenda. We could never figure out why she gave us each a name beginning with 'B'.
