Grand Hotel, My Great Grandfathers Brother.

A Memory of Bournemouth

Re the person referred to in the title; George Alfred Bennett. About the 1888's he got a job as a waiter, wages 8 shillings per week and he had to buy his own dress suit. Within a fortnight he had learn't to carve meat, and fold serviettes in a dozen different ways. Whilst there, the hotel had Mary Rose and the German Reeds to stay. Has anyone got any more info about the Hotel in that era, who was Mary Rose and the German Reeds ??
