Hi all what I've done has ordered a death cert for Nellie I've asked my auntie some more questions and hope and pray that the GRO can find here. Then I can confirm her  I'm hoping this week I be getting a photo of her at a wedding and I'll put it on here then u can see her and u can say I rembember her ... This was the last resort what I have done. Even rang yardley cemerty they have some of  the else side family ( Nellie married name )
Hope u are all ok and looking foward to a good weekend  :D

Keep going if you want to find her you will.

If you believe that the carrier bag lady was your great grandmother you must carry on. There was once a Berlin wall.

a blong

There is a resemblance to the photo that I posted, so allowing for aging it could be possible. When was your photo taken?

The woman I recognise as the carrier bag lady is the first one on the double photo.

If the photo on the right was taken 1953 that's not the lady I knew as the carrier bag lady. Perhaps the lady on the left took over after your great grandmother retired.
