Memories of Wrentham


I was born in the house on the right and spent my childhood here.  It's nice to see a photo of the crossroads with the Town Hall with the spire.

I think my Grandfather was born on this street! He was called Wilfred Albert Parsk and fought in the Somme at about 16 years of age He never spoke much about the war but I know he lost a lot of his friends. He died in the 1980s but his memory is still cherished!

The first two cottages on the left have been demolished. The grey and the white building. The shop at the end is what I own. It used to be a grocers shop, watch makers and a bakery. It was mentioned in the 1861 census but I cannot trace the shops back further.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?
