Note on Marriage

Diane WORFOLK: "My dad's parents died with 6 months inbetween them. At the time I think my mum [Gladys FAIRWEATHER] was pregnant. She moved into the house [79 Harworth Street] before or after they died. Also living in the house were my dad's younger brothers. After the baby was born (stillborn) or around that time, my Dad threw his younger brothers out. Causing much ill-feeling among the siblings. You would have to get actual dates to see if this story is correct. The house was a rented house. I do know that one or all of the brothers went to live with the Corbetts, Eveline and Horace, who lived down the road in Burgoyne Road."30

Note on Husband: Benjamin WORFOLK

Diane WORFOLK: "In some respects he was a shy reticent man. Definitely an alcoholic. But he rarely missed a day's work. Whatever his condition the night before he always could get up for work the day after. He went out every night to the local pub, or some drinking place."30

Note on Wife: Gladys FAIRWEATHER

Diane WORFOLK: "My Mum used to live up the road in Burgoyne Road before she married. That is how she met my dad. But that said she Knew his brother William, who was killed in the War, before she went out with my Dad. So she told me anyway."30
