Gladys Lillian

Gladys is another of my Grandfather's siblings (there were fourteen of them in all!). I created this layout at the Merly Impressions Retreat back at the beginning of the month. It was one of the kits included in the weekend and designed by Chrissy. The design is created with Kaisercraft's Cottage Rose collection. Creating the layout included using texture paste through a stencil, stitching, punching around the page with a Martha Stuart PATP set and Distress Inks.

A little history for my photograph:

Gladys Lillian Holder - My Great Auntie Gladys.
Born in July 1896 Bromley, the seventh of fourteen children to
Frederick Henry and Emma Jane Florence (Williams) Holder.
The 1901 Census shows Gladys was 4 years old and living at
120 Southlands Road Bromley with her parents and eight of her siblings.
At the time of the 1911 Census Gladys was 14 years old and working
as a Morning Girl Domestic but living at home with her parents and ten of her siblings.
Gladys married Ernest Matthew Bush (03/05/1895 – 02/07/1963) circa 1920
They had one daughter Edna May in 1922 born in Bromley
They emigrated to Canada and lived in British Columbia (Gladys’ sister
Florence and husband Charles Kiff also emigrated to Canada).
They did travel back to England for a while as they were here for a family reunion in 1960
Gladys died in Vancouver in 1966
