I still wonder just who Aunt Nell was. She was known as my great aunt, the little sister of my grandmother, Mella, but Nell was born years after the death of Mella’s father. Who knows, perhaps she was my grandmorher’s little sister although my great-grandmother, Mary Irwin, should have received an award for giving birth in her 60s.
Then there’s Uncle Frank, my father’s youngest brother but that was all handled badly and it was obvious he was a ring in too. And no prizes for guessing he was the son of Great Aunt Bella. Why did they bother?
