Where I Lived,And My Father Worked

I was born Norma Sanderson in 1947 at the hall. My father was chauffeur for Leroy Lewis. I was christened in St Cuthberts and I remember as a little girl seeing a plaque on the wall of the church with the name Leroy Lewis on it, my dad drove her in a big black car on her trips, I think to London.
