William SMART (Wednesday’s post) died in 1941 at “Broombank”, Primrose Valley. I expected to find him there at the beginning of the Second World War. Puzzled by my failure to locate him or his wife anywhere in Yorkshire – I searched for his sister in law, Ethel, whose last address was also Broombank.
The handwriting on the Register schedule is atrocious, so I don’t blame the transcriber for the errors.
I walked to Primrose Valley this morning to photograph the Smart house, now divided into three self-catering apartments. (Beachwalk Apartments: The Seashore, The Sail Boat and The Lighthouse.)
