Note on Husband: John Henry PERCIVAL

Born out of wedlock. Lived with his Grandmother, Ann Whittaker nee Kelham until his parents were able to get married (when his father joined the police force.)

 

Went to Hinckley Grammar School until the family moved to Coalville. His great love was of metalwork and machinery. The grammar school taught mainly classics and he hated it.

 

He worked for Colemans for most of his life, repairing and bespoking farm machinery for a good portion of the time.

 

Served in Northumberland Fusiliers in first world war.

 

When he died he wanted to buried with his mother's family in Barkestone rather than his own family in Coalville.
