Dolly went home, Barbara took her to the Bus station. Arthur & I laid more slabs.


Dolly refers to Dorothy Rose, who I knew as Auntie Dolly. She was grandma’s first cousin and lived in Bedford. She visited grandma and grandad about three times each year, see Chapter 106.

Barbara refers to Barbara Carpenter. She was grandma and grandad’s next-door neighbour at 164 Drayton High Road. She had a car so sometimes helped grandma and grandad including taking Auntie Dolly to the bus station, see Chapter 106. For more details of lifts she gave to grandma and grandad, see Chapter 110.

Arthur refers to grandad’s friend Arthur Elsegood. He often helped grandad with practical tasks, see Chapter 109.
