© Mr Roy & Mrs Betty Cornwell

An honour being invited into the Sutton home of Mr and Mrs Cornwell, plus being entrusted with preserving this magnificent album. Roy proudly recalls meeting his Huthwaite born wife Betty when Miss Hancock worked at Grooms's Beach Avenue factory. His trainee position with Gunby's as a professional Painter and Decorator was significantly improved when her factory owner eventually offered Roy a fully skilled self employed position maintaining the entire works premises to the very highest standard.

Their shared album reveals some very unique memorabilia which actually all follows Betty's family line. Here begins with Elliott grand parentage schooled at the first Hucknall Huthwaite Church National School, and later notes a related Joseph Elliott holding Secretary post involving a Sutton Church and Friendly Society. Marriage into the Hancock surname led to parents setting up home, actually constructed from joining up two railway carriages obtained from the former Whiteborough Station. Sited on Chesterfield Road with addressing No.95 is where they proudly managed to raise their three children named Edna, Gordon plus of course Betty herself.
