Lily Sargeant - a Memory of Abergwili.

This is really a wish for a memory. My mother's mother's name was Lily Sargeant. She lived in the house called Bryneithin just to the east of Abergwili. My mother, Mary Eileen, who was born on 28 January 1923 in Carmarthen, was raised by her grandmother until her grandmother died. My mother was then raised by her guardian, a Mrs Hoare. In about 1939 my mother moved to 311 Gower Road Sketty (Upper Killay) Swansea SA2 7HQ until she joined the WAAF as a radar operator. Unfortunately for me, her second born, she rarely talked about her childhood experiences. So now she is dead (she died on 20 September 2014) I feel I can try and imagine what her chilhood experiences may have been like. This journey has just begun and I would be grateful to hear from anyone who knew about my mother's mother and her grandmother.
