May Whitehead was born April 5th 1914 at 22, Belgrave Avenue, Watford, Hertfordshire. She was the daughter of Harry Whitehead and Edith (Morris) Whitehead. Her father was a railway inspector, and travelled a lot with his work, which is why May was born in Watford although her family was from Lancashire.

May "always said she was happiest with the lads, and preferred football to dolls. She was once left head first in a barrel of apples outside a shop by Eric. He was holding her legs so she could pinch some but cleared off when the shopkeeper came. It didn't seem to dent her adoration. He was always her blue-eye and lived with [May & her husband] after his wife died, until his own death."

May worked as a civil servant and as a shop manageress.

May married William Saxon Halsall on November 6th 1935 at St Thomas' Church in Blackpool.

William died September 25th 1987 in Areley Kings, Worcestershire. May died in 2005 at Worcester Royal Hospital, aged 91.
