  • Name  Hannah Brooksbank 
    Born  27 Sep 1888  Spark Green, Meltham, Yorkshire Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Her death registration gives her date of birth as 16 Sep 1888. Either way she was born only four months after her parents married. Probably in an attempt to cover up her early birth she was not baptised until a year after her parents marriage. Auntie Hannah, as we knew her, was a deeply religious Methodist and would have been mortified to know she was conceived out of wedlock. It is possible though that this was kept a secret even from Hannah herself.
