- Edna May born 26 December 1909. Fostered out aged 10 weeks to 'Granny Wren', a midwife from Christchurch. Granny had a daughter Lena who i always knew as Aunt Lena [b1903]. Edna's father is down on her birth certificate as Henry Fitzroy Turnbull... but as mentioned earlier, he died in 1902, so really i have no idea who her father was but do have Henry's line [to compensate!] back until 1750.
Eva worked as a cook for many years. Working at New Brighton Hotel and the Silver Grid hotel. She was the Grandaughter of Rosannah and Thomas Seth LODGE

I made the bed when i started the diorama. Furniture is a challenge to me LOL but i'm relishing it :) I painted it rather roughly as i want the appearance to be old. I'm going to handsew a 'kapok' mattress for it later. Note the coin for scale.
