East Crescent

A Memory of Bush Hill Park

My mother was born in East Crescent and she probably went to Enfield girls school. Her name was Faith Hill and her mother Ada ran a drapers. her father William Hill was ill with cancer but before that he was a monumental mason. he stopped a runaway horse but got badly injured. He died 1916. I wondered if anyone had any photos or a paper article about this. Or if anyone remembers my family and when they emigrated in 1924 on the corinthic. other members of the family were Ruth and Rachel and they had a brother Leonard who died as a baby. my grandmother moved down to Rettendon before the war. I would be interested to hear any info. Vicki
