bullet  General Notes:

As told by David NADEN {799}, Elsie HALL's grandson.

Crompton Road was a more affluent part of town, i.e. where working people with a skill lived, e.g. weavers etc. Joseph Naden was from the other side of town, certainly a more 'down-market' area. How Elsie and Joseph met is intriguing. How they came to get married is more obvious, check the marriage date and the DOB of John Naden, their first born. They had three children. Elsie is believed to have had several miscarriages as well, though I will never know for sure.

Elsie's character fits with that of 'strict Victorian with a good heart'. She did not believe in 'mod conns'. For example, she would not have electricity installed at 144 when approached by the landlord. It was too modern, and I think she was perfectly happy with gas. All the lights were gas in the house until her death. The house was very much her domain. She lived there all her life.

The front room was the best room, spotless, and never used, even for visitors! The back room was the main living room. There was a 'range' installed here always lit. Next to it was a 'chaise longue' where I used to sit with my brother. Elsie used to baby sit me and my brother while my mum {810} was at work before we went to school. To the rear was a utility room, stone flagged floor, with an old gas cooker and a 'boiler' for washing. It was a very draughty house, just how my grandmother liked it. The toilet was outside at the back, shared with a neighbour, torn-up newspaper for toilet paper, and freezing in winter!

The garden was a vegetable patch with a hen coop. The family was partially self sufficient.

At one time, 144 Crompton Road was a shop. I've got a picture of Elsie Hall, aged approx. 10 standing at the front door of what I've been told is the shop. The present window, front, ground floor was the shop window. When Elsie died, many 'shop' items was found in the house. So George, or more probably Martha was probably a shopkeeper! George was a silk weaver, and there was a complete working loom in the 'garret' when it was 'cleared'.
