I am grateful to Rosemary who researched Annie's marriage to Henry and sharing the wonderful photo  of her grandmother Nan who was brought up in an orphanage in London. She was employed as a maid in the Richardson home in the 1920's and told Rosemary's father she was particularly fond of Mrs Richardson.
