Comments about this page

  • Jean Bramwell provided more names and the following information.

    Mrs Foreman’s husband was a policeman and an undertaker.

    Cath Beckett is Jean’s sister and was a school secretary like Jean. 

    Peggy Stevens was the Surveyor’s wife.

    The 29 Club was started by Mrs. Machacek, Mrs Edith Lindtner and Mrs Peggy Stevens in 1952. It originally met in the Red Cross Hall, then in the Admiral Jellico and finally in the OAP’s Hall in Central Wall Road. The club was disbanded in the late 90’s or possibly in 2000.

    The funds that were left over were donated to the local charity BOPH.

  • Mrs Owen (cutting the cake) is my late grandmother, Yvonne Owen, who was married to Roy Owen. He had a garage/workshop on Canvey Island where he repaired cars and boats. Apparently he rescued a lot of people during the floods using his boat to ferry them to safely. The Owen family all still live in the area, although none are on Canvey anymore that I’m aware of.
