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.
