Church Cottage 1930

Sylvia Rich writes: Eli & Ada Rumsey (nee Drury) would have been living here with daughter Vi. Eli died in 1955, aged 82 and I believe Vi continued living there until her death in 1976, aged 71.

You can see a picture of Eli Rumsey in the wedding photo below.

    Very interesting site. If I may I can expand on one item. Violet moved to Peterborough before she died , but I am not sure when. I am Eli’s Grandson and lived at the Cottage during WW2.

      Thank you very much for that. If you have any stories of the village from that time we would love to hear them!
