1951 : Colchester, Essex

Here is a photo of my Grandma Holyland, with my Mum Annette on the right and her sister Yvonne on the left. After quite a bit of research I’ve narrowed this photo down to Burlington Road, Colchester. The house in the background has since been demolished. My Grandparents lived at number 24.

My Grandma was probably expecting my Mum’s eldest brother at the time and not long after, they all moved up to Leicester, where my Grandad was from. My Grandma was born in the small village of Layer de la Haye, south of Colchester.
