Yearsdon School of Dancing
I am not sure where I got these from but found them on my computer.
They are photos of Gertrude Yearsdon who had a dance school on Canvey. We have other photos from the group on our site.
Gertrude was born in York in 1908. She was living with her parents and sister in Southend in the 1939 register.
When she came to Canvey we do not know. Whether she actually lived on Canvey we have no idea. Her school of Dancing in 1935 was in Hamstel Road in Southend.
She was living in Thundersley when she died in 1964.
Where was her school? Did she live on Canvey?
If anyone can enlighten us please comment below.
