Frank Ockendenís Wedding, Quorn, 1958.

Elsie Bishop was born (as Elsie Lovett) in Quorn in 1912. She married her husband Roy in 1933 and they lived at 27 Nursery Lane. Elsie was a cleaner and waitress at Quorn Hall and this photograph was taken from her album. The occasion is thought to be a party to celebrate the wedding of Frank Ockenden and Kathleen Burns in 1958. Frank and Kathleen both worked at Quorn Hall. Elsie is on the right (number 20).

Elsie was widowed in 1957 when she was only 45. She continued to live on Nursery Lane, but in her later years she moved to Skegness to be near her eldest daughter. She died in 2015, just before her 103rd birthday.
