North Ormesby – Mam’s Family

North Ormesby was a very close-knit community. All of our relatives lived within a few streets of one another – amazingly all inside a circle of 200 metres diameter. Aunty Edie and Uncle Teddy (Mam’s younger brother) and their only daughter Brenda lived next door to Gran and Grandad in Harrison Street. Aunty Myra (Grandma’s sister) and Uncle Jack lived at the other end of the street. Uncle Jimmy (Mam’s oldest brother) and Aunty Hilda’s house in Church Street backed onto Gran’s house across the alley. Aunty Vangie, another of Gran’s sisters, lived in Tees Street a minute walk from Gran’s.
