Ada and Harry had twin boys Harry and Walter and a daughter Lily. After Harry died, Ada remarried Mr Owen.
I had a lovely email from Sue Crook whose husband Alan is the son of Walter and therefore is Harry's grandson. Sue has embroidered a beautiful felt heart for a project that the Embroiderer's Guild in conjunction with SSAFA are making to commemorate the 1918 Centenary.
Thanks Sue for sharing your family story and photos.
