The third of four daughters born to Harry John Yates Sarah Anne Cassidy

Gran was larger than life and would give away her last penny to anyone with a need. Generous to a all and a loved member of her community.
She brought up her family in a small end of terrace at the top of a steep hill, with no bathroom and an outside toilet in the back yard. The boys had the middle bedroom, the girls walked through this to get to the small back bedroom. Downstairs there was a front room which you entered into via the front door. Then a steep set of stairs passed these was the back room, come dining bathing basically the everything room.
My sisters and I spent numerous holidays staying with our grandparents and other relatives. Some great memories.
Gran died at home in her sleep from a heart attack. Grandad found her when he woke up, he called uncle Bertram (Bert) who informed the rest of the family. Gran died just 6 weeks before my wedding, we visited the grave and left the wedding bouquet on the grave. Missed but not forgotten
