  • Notes 
    • Margaruite came from a family of shop owners. She became a French Polisher by trade and worked on coffins. She used to put extra padding in so that the deceased wouldn't be cold! She lived in the same house as William (Bill)Knight at 20 Morson Street, Aston, before she was married and was pregnant with Lillian by the time she walked up the aisle.

      The wedding apparently was a large affair held in the communal back yard which was full. The vicar who married them was named Blood and Margaruite called him "Father Blood".

      In complete contrast to Bill, she was very laid back. (Half soaked)She may even have been lazy because she left Frankie, aged 2, in the charge of his sister Ivy, aged 3-4, and he was run over by the horse and cart belonging to the coalman. The coalman had gone to sleep behind the reins but the horse, knowing his way home, just carried on. Frankie, of course, was killed.
