Catherine And Albert

Kate and Albert Beanland (c. 1940) Scanned Family Photo (F1/3)

My grandparents, Catherine and Albert Beanland, in a photograph taken a few years before my birth. According to the 1939 Register, they were living at 12, Lawrence Street, in the Princeville district of Bradford. Albert, 64 years old in 1939, was employed as a textile mechanic, whereas Catherine, 62, was registered as undertaking “unpaid domestic duties”. Albert was to live another nine years, but died a few months after my birth, in September 1948. Catherine died in April 1960, aged 83.
