1763 to 1990

1. Thomas DIX was born about 1763. He was buried on 14 Nov 1816 in Southrepps, Norfolk, England.

Moving on to my REAL grandfather, Clarence, who married Enid Anne Sylvia – my Nan, always called Anne.

I have vivid memories of her silver cutlery. It was engraved EAS on every handle. That’s how I know her birth name.

Like I wouldn’t’ve asked!!

Clarence Edward WEBDALE was born on 13 Feb 1906 in East Bilney, Norfolk, England. He died in 1980 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, England

Clarence married (1) Enid Ann Sylvia CABLE in 1935 in Blofield RD, Norfolk, England. Enid was born on 30 Nov 1908 in Blofield RD, Norfolk, England. She died on 15 Oct 2004 in North Lincolnshire RD, Lincolnshire, England.

My sons remember Nana Anne.

This poem totally broke me in 2004. I might’ve made a sobbing fool of myself. Yes. I did. Because Nan had asked for this to be read. And she was always my fellow reader of books. We’d swap and share whenever I was with her.
