    Notes 
    • Jennifer Ridsdale, February 2015:

      "I remember my great-grandma as Elizabeth (nee Alderson). She died when I was a child, but was alive when Sir Winston Churchill died because she made my sister and I watch the funeral from beginning to end! We were so bored. I don't remember my great-granddad, he may have died before I was born. I know that he was awarded the Victoria Cross for bravery during the First World War. He dashed out of the trench to drag an injured comrade in, and he lost one his own legs in the process. They named one of their sons Harry, so he was likely named after his father."
