Grandad’s Biography

Very sadly, this summer my Grandad passed away. He was 97 years old and his mind was as sharp as a pin until the day he died.

For some time the family had been trying to get him to write his biography, to tell the story of his early years in the East End of London and his trip to Australia in the 1920s. Sadly he didn’t finish it but after some conversations with his nieces and nephews and some of our own memories I have been able to create this momento of his life.

I’m really pleased with the final product and have received positive feedback from family members that have received a copy so far. It’s a great way to display some of the many photos we have of Grandad and something we will treasure and pass on to his great grandchildren and, hopefully, their children too.
