Family Pictures Steven Warren

As a direct result of embarking on what was to become a series of articles in relation to my family the first world war and then closely followed by the sufragette movement nand East London rates of 1921 it has become necessary for me to create additonal pages of images here on my website.


My Grandmother, Elsie May and I around 1962

Elsie May 1922. The photographer pulled the dress a little lower on her shoulders and my grandmother told him 'oh no you don't' . Gracious picture.



I so remember this picture being taken. Auntie Rosie is in the middle and born 1898 three years older than my grandmother who was born in 1901.



My grandmother and grandfather at the seaside and probably Brighton. I remember my grandmother telling me how their trips in the car from London to the coast were some of the happiest memories for her. All three girls were young and they used to have the windows open and sing every verse of 'Onward Christian Soliers'.

When my grandmother died and I created her funeral I talked with the vicar and said I wanted this hymn played at her funeral. I succeeded in convincing him. Her funeral was on 29th October 1987.



William aged 18 when he joined the newly established Royal Air Force to fight in the First World War. You can read more here on the website under the articles section.



Pamela and Janet sat in the garden just after my grandmother had given birth to her third daughter, Ann Beatrice with her nurse sitting with them.

My grandparents married when they were 29 and 28 and their first daughter, my mother Pamela, was born four years later in 1931. Anne born in 1938 just before the second world war began meant that my grandmother was 37 when she gave birth to her daughter.
