Frances was born at 50 Hermit Road, canning Town Greater London on February 2 1902.[1] She was the daughter of Harry Hills and Sue Hall. Frances was always known as Franie in the family. There were already two older children when she was born. The house was owned by Franie's maternal grandfather, who had a photographic studio there. Her Grandmother had died but her grandfather had married a younger woman who Franie remembered liked to be called 'Auntie Annie' because she said she was too young to be called 'Grandma' Franie recalled that her Grandfather liked to be called 'Matey'. Frances married a near neighbour, Albert Yellop, on December 26, 1921.[2] They lived with Frances' family having the front room at 61 North Street Barking, over the family shop until they got a home of their own. Franie gave birth to 7 children one of whom died in infancy, the others all outlived her. Frances was staying with her daughter, Joan in Hutton, Essex, when she died rather unexpectedly on November 11, 1994.[3] She had moved from Barking to Shoeburyness about thirty years previously and she was buried in the churchyard at Shoeburyness after a service in the church there.
