Further Research: Uncle James Allen

We've also been undertaking new research about Mary Lily Walker's life, to fill in the many gaps that remain in her story.

Here are some shots of the research we were undertaking in Kendal, in October.  Her Uncle, James Allen lived in Kendal, and she visited him there many times.  We have lots of letters in the archives of her correspondence to show that!
