Notes for Vera Doris Annie Taylor:
Vera was born on the 2nd November 1914 at 264 Staines Rd. Hounslow Middx. And soon after moved with her mother to Ethelburger St Battersea. Her father was not around and Vera does not remember him. She did not believe he was her real father but had no proof.. Later they moved to 2 Pearson St. Battersea (Later Batton St.) At the age of 5 she started school at Shillington Street school Battersea where she stayed through Infants Juniors and senior school until she left to start work in 1928 aged 14. The school had its own cookery and its own laundry where the girls were taught domestic subjects. The playground of the school was on the roof and also at that time a school for blind children was also attached and Vera's mother Ada would sometimes collect some of the local blind children from home and take them to school
At 14 Vera had passed a Scholarship to go to a Trade school and desperately wanted to go to learn hairdressing but her mother could not afford to send her and so she had to start work at 14 at the Sycamore Laundry at Clapham. Vera remembers that her starting wage was 10 shillings per week (50Pence) of which she had to hand over 9 shillings (45pence) to her mother for her board and keep and had 1 shilling ( 5 Pence) for herself. In her first few years at work Vera had many jobs, Always moving on for more money. She worked at Cleeves Toffee Factory, A Custard and Mustard factory in Park gate Rd. Battersea. Chelsea Liqueurs factory, Nestles sweet factory in Battersea and even tried going into service working as a scullery maid in a large house. This only lasted 2 weeks as she was made to pay for breakages out of her wages and so did not have any to collect,and so she left. during her time in service she was very naive and was shown the dumb waiter and told to send up the meals for the family in it. Vera not having seen one before got in it with all the plates of food all hunched up and sent herself and the food up in the tiny lift arriving in the dining room much to the amazement of the family and guests. Eventually Vera got a job at the Morgan Crucible Company in Battersea church Rd. where she was earning 15 shillings a week ( 75pence and later went on a machine making carbon rings where she was on piecework and could earn a little more.. She later became a charge hand and was therefore able to put in a good word for her Husband and get him a job there as well..After her marriage they lived for a while in a rented flat in Ashness Rd. Battersea SW11 and later moved to 15 Berber Rd Battersea SW11 which they shared with her Mother Ada and her Stepfather Harry Spencer and her Half Sister Violet Spencer. Her Mother, Stepfather and sister had the upstairs part of the house and Vera and Charlie(Wyndham Philip) had the downstairs flat. They lived there throughout the 1939/45 war using the coal cellar as a shelter from the bombing. When her son Michael was due in 1943 the war was still going on and so she was sent to Headingly in Oxford to have him and afterwords was evacuated with the Baby and lived with a Step Aunt in Ascot Berkshire. Vera and her Aunt did not get on and so she returned to Berber Rd and stayed there throughout the rest of the war. After Vera's Mother and Stepfather had died Vera and Charlie took over the whole house which was a large Victorian Terrace house with 7 large rooms and a Kitchen Bathroom and two toilets. When the new Landlord wanted to sell the house Vera and Charlie were offered it as they were controlled tenants, so after many years of renting, in 1972 purchased the house for £3,500.. In 1975 they sold it for £15,000 and bought 197 West Barnes Lane New Malden Surrey for £13,000 and were able to clear their original Mortgage. Vera Loved her garden and was overjoyed with the house as the garden (although only the width of the house) was 150 ft long. In 1986 Vera and Charlie celebrated their Golden wedding anniversary with a family party. In 1996 they celebrated their Diamond wedding and received a Telegram from the Queen.. In 2001 after nearly 65 years of marriage Charlie died aged 88 and Vera lived on her own but frequently visited by family and friends and
she loved the visits from her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren and her friend Josie Miller. In 2005 Vera died after an illness in Kingson Hospital aged nearly 91
