|Walter 1882 worked for Ashby's
brewery (now Courages) in Staines, Middlesex, delivering their products
to pubs over a wide area using horse drawn transport. By 1914 they had
modernised and used motor transport, and it was whilst making a delivery
at Chertsey that an accident with the starting handle resulted in his
leg being amputated. He could no longer drive and so he found a job as
Steward of the Constitutional Club in Staines where he worked until he
retired in 1947.
Herbert Monk was a remarkable little man. In the 1920's he owned a greengrocery between Weybridge and Walton-on-Thames but was known for giving a lot of his stock away to people he thought couldn't afford to pay. He moved to Ramsgate in the late 1920's and retired and moved to Frimley Green, Surrey, before World War II. It was lucky because the entire street where he had lived in Ramsgate was flattened by the bombing.
Though in his seventies, and with no buses running on Sunday mornings, he walked the 13 miles to Egham to see his newly born great nephew Alan and then walked back home again.
Herbert was 40 when he married Alice, a girl of 19; she lived to be 80, but he outlived her and then said he had nothing left to live for and went to sleep in his armchair six weeks short of his 101st birthday.
He rolled his own cigarettes and dug his 100 ft garden until he was 98.
