This is a tribute to a shy young couple born into the working class at the beginning of the 20th century. Having left their homes and families in the North to get employment they met firstly in London and then in Windsor. After a slightly tricky start, they formed a loving, supportive partnership that was to survive WW2, a life-threatening road accident and the trials and tribulations of everyday life for over 50 years.
Their goal was to provide a stable and loving background that would afford their children opportunities in life that, through circumstances of their birth and the time in which they lived, they never had. Strong family people they also sought to maintain links and provide support when necessary for their siblings. This tribute is based on photographs and memories they left.
