A Chauffeur Working In Limpsfield - a Memory of Limpsfield.
My Great-uncle, Bertie (or Robert) Jarrett, was born in Oxfordshire in 1887 and lived in Limpsfield from the 1920s until his death in 1975.
After serving in the Cavalry in the First World War, he became chauffeur to Sir Leslie Scott MP (Solicitor General in 1922), and later to Sir Benjamin Cohen KC. Bertie and his wife, Dorothy, had their own self-contained flat on the premises of one of these employers in (or near) Limpsfield.
Later, the couple moved to No. 2 White Hart Cottages, in Limpsfield High Street, where they lived until Bertie's death on their Diamond wedding anniversary in June 1975.
I am not sure whether the couple had any children. Does anybody remember them?
