Roy and Elsie Bishop, Quorn family photographs 1940s

These photographs are from the family album of Elsie Bishop who used to live on Nursery Lane in Quorn. Her family have very kindly supplied these copies.

Elsie was born at 8 Nursery Lane in Quorn on 11th March 1912. She was the only daughter and the youngest of four children of Charles William Lovett and Mary Anne Lovett (nee Wykes). Her brothers were Charlie, Jim and Percy. In 1933 she married Roy Bishop from Mountsorrel and the couple set up home at 27 Nursery Lane. They had two girls; Betty born in 1940 and Susan born in 1946.

Roy died on 5th October 1957, aged only 46. Elsie continued to live on Nursery Lane, but in her later years she moved to Skegness to be near her eldest daughter, where she lived to be 102. She died in 2015, just before her 103rd birthday.
