Maud Annie Lockwood

This is my maternal grandmother, Maud Annie Lockwood. She was born in 1885 in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Her younger brother, Bertram died as a young child so Maud was brought up as an only one.

From the way my mum and my aunt and uncle talked about her, Maud sounded like a hard working woman who looked after the rest of the family without complaining.

She worked as an English teacher so was obviously an educated woman.

As a child she lived in Headingley cum Burley before moving to Kirkstall in her twenties. She married Alfred in 1915. She lived in Kirkstall until she died in 1962, aged 77 years old.
