the lady mentioned above was my nana. She was born in Hanwell, Middlesex, England on 21-06-1913. Her father was James (Jim) Bywater and her mother was Lyley(?) Bywater (nee Hill). Her father fought in the battle of Neuve Chappelle in France in 1915 and died at Fishponds Hospital 3 months after fighting the Germans and being mortally wounded.
She passed away on June 30th 2008, 10 days after turning 95 years old. This posting is just a way of making sure her memory doesn't go unnoticed. A grand lady who was a fantastic gran and a conversationalist. I shall miss you dearly Nan. RIP. Say hello to all the family who i never met. Until we meet again.
