    Notes 
    • Occupation: Bank of England, Threadneedle Street
    • From Kaye Wachter's book:
      Eleanor states that, "all our generation, starting with our parents, left Plymouth [Devon] and lived in London." This would include Wally who married Sallie [Sarah] and had 3 children, and Alfred who married Emily and had 5 children.
      During the war, Eleanor was evacuated with the accountant's department to the safety of the country.
      There they took over a stately home with extensive park and grounds where Eleanor had an allotment and learned to ride.
      Later when she returned to London [laden with vegetables] they had an air raid shelter dug out at the bottom of the garden where they slept during the "doodle bug" season [V-1 bomb]. The house was damaged but no one was hurt.
      After retirement in 1956 she moved to Chester with aunts of her Mother's family who all originated in Cheshire.
      Eleanor writes that she had a wonderful trip to America in 1963, sailing from London to New York, visiting with Francis and Doris in Minneapolis. With them she met lots of relatives and had a wonderful time.
