My History - a Memory of Willesden.

I was born in Park Royal Hospital in November 1951. Lived for a while in Willesden High Road. We then moved to Severn Way, which was off Denzil Road. I went to school at Dudden Hill Infants School. Then I went to St.Marys Junior school. After that I went to John Kelly Girls School. When I was 15 I left school and went to work at the Oxford University Press in Neasen. I worked there till I got married in St. Marys Church. We were married by Reverend Oakley. I married a sailor so we moved to Plymouth, then Chatham, Hong Kong for 2 years, back to Chatham the we moved to Portsmouth in Hampshire where we still live. I enjoyed living in Willesden at the time but would never move back, as love living by the sea.
