Albert Henry Roe
my grandfather, worked on the railways.
in Manchester where she worked as a maid in South Manchester.
He wooed her
by throwing coal over the hedge backing onto the railway where she worked.
was born in Withington, Manchester in 1894. Her family lived in Lady Barn, South
Manchester, but were originally from Northenden, a village which at the time was
married in 1913, settled in Withington, South Manchester and had nine children,
including three sets of twins. Sadly not all the children survived the traumas
of birth. Only Marjorie survived.
