   LILLIAN WELLS. Ref: 4422. Born: 7 Nov 1885 at Rothwell, Northants. Father: Wells, David, Father Ref: 43000. Mother: Austin, Mary Ann, Mother Ref:

   42002.  Mar: 24 Apr 1905 at Rothwell, Northants to Covington, Ernest Albert 294. Died: 4 Apr 1974 at Coventry aged 88.  Author's grandmother. Public

   Records Office list birth as 11 November 1884 but birth certificate shows that it was 7 Nov 1885. Father shown as shoe finisher on marriage certificate.

  

   She was the thirteenth child of thirteen, but never knew some of her siblings who had died before she was born.

  

   During WW2 their house on Radford Road, Coventry was bombed by the Germans. Quite simply, the bomb went straight down the chimney pot and

   completely destroyed the house, leaving both terraced houses, either side, untouched. Fortunately my grandparents were in the local air raid shelter so were

   safe. Unfortunately, my Grandma had taken off her wedding ring & left it in the house, so it disappeared. The house was subsequently rebuilt & they moved

   back in. Some 40 years later my grandfather found the ring whilst gardening.

  

   As a child, my father would take me every week to visit Grandma & Granddad. The routine would be that we would spend the first half hour at the house & then

   the men, me included, would go off to the local Social Club. I remember Grandma would spend the whole of my time with her, whisking the mix for the yorkshire

    pudding. When we then returned to drop Granddad off home after his beer, she would insist that I had a piece of her now cooked Yorkshire. It was amazing.

   Only problem was that by the time we got home, I was too filled up with pudding to eat my mum's roast dinner, which most definitely didn't please her!!(Last
