  1. To Jenny Noakes I knew Aunt Vera – Jack Ward (Sheila,s brother) and I used to visit Vera at the Sweet Shop in Brimington. I think Vera’s husband was called Ken
    a very nice gentleman. Vera used to give us sweets. Vera’s Mother was Leslie
    Ward married to Henry who made her life difficult. I remember Vera being crowned
    May Queen – she was a beautiful and very attractive lady. Bernard Ward

  2. That’s my mum Vera Cocking as the Gala Queen (or whatever her title was). My late sister Cynthia Emson (nee Godfrey) also lived in Killamarsh, as did my late Auntie Sheila (Sikorski). We lived in Brimington nr Chesterfield where we had a shop till 1973. I live in Essex but still visit my Emson relatives in Killamarsh. Mum died in 1985. She was a hairdresser and beautician at Coles in Sheffield before the war. Always a beautiful lady, inside and out and she is buried in the cemetery in Killamarsh.
