England to Canada - A Life Story

Mother's Memoir

In her later years, our mother began writing her memories and recounted many stories of her early life. Her earliest memory was of the death of her father, and the effect it had on her family life. She told the stories of living in Cheshire, holidaying as a family in Wales, and going to school and university.


She described her journey to British Columbia in 1927, her marriage and life in rural BC during the depression and into second world war.

Unfortunately, she passed away before recounting the years beyond 1945. 


I have pieced together all of her stories and memories and published them in a book for the family. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I, and be prepared for a few tears along the way!
