Great aunt Lily
Lily Butler was born in 1891 in Wakefield, Yorkshire. She was the second child of Charles William Butler and Everil Stacey, the elder sister of my grandmother Edith Tirrell (nee Butler). When her parents died Lily went to live with her paternal grandparents, John and Mary Stacey, in Ravenfield. She was living with them in 1901 and in 1911 she was still living with them along with her husband Frank Garner who she married in March of that year. Frank and Lily had two children, Everil born in 1911 and named after her deceased grandmother, and Arthur who was born in 1912. I know nothing more about the family but do have this photograph which was given to me by my mother.
