Yateley Grange - a Memory of Yateley.

My grandfather William Haines lived in Yateley Grange Lodge and was the coachman and eventually chauffeur to the lady who lived in The Grange, a Miss Thoits. He was also gardener and handyman and, strange as it may seem nowadays, made the gas for both the Grange and the Lodge. I am now 82 and recently found the grave of my grandfather and grandmother in St Peter's churchyard in the village.
My mother and father were also married in St Peter's Church.

Sorry can’t help, the names mean nothing to me.

Dear Robin

Rather a long time since you wrote your memory, but perhaps you would know who lived in Yateley Court in 1950.
I want to find out whether it was Mary or Mamie Lawford, who was great aunt to my cousin Mamie Salmon.
In hope, Jennifer
