Memories of Alverstoke

My mum worked at the children's home in 1964ish; we lived in a caravan on the grounds. We had picnics near to Windsor Great Park - please can you provide any information about the home?

I was there from 1963 -1965. I remember the day we wandered off to the church, Anne , Tracy and I. Tracy fell in the fish pond. It was a very scary/funny memory for me, I was about 4 I think. Also Sister Ivy Bell married my father David Peacock at this church in July, 1965.. Lorrell Peacock.

I used to come to Alverstoke with my mother, father and sister to visit my great aunt May Mackie from 1953-1970's. I used to love playing mini golf here with my family. I lived in Alverstoke for a year when we first arrived back from Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) in !953 and lived with my Grandmother Mrs Violet Isabel Black. (...Read full memory)

I have just started researching my family history. My great grandfather was Jacob Abraham and was gardener for John Brett Purvis and then Richard Purvis at Bury Hall. I would love to see a picture of Bury Hall and or Bury Hall Lodge. Does it still exist? My father Isaac Abraham worked at the Royal Laboratory at the age of 12!
