|On her wedding day, Dorothy Kate wore a
gold and amethyst necklace and this was then worn by her
Barbara Dorothy on her own wedding day. Barbara then gave it to her daughter Dorothy (Dorothy Kate's grandaughter)
to wear on her wedding day - and this wedding also took place at Tarring Neville, much to the delight of
Herbert Charles Allen who attended the ceremony just weeks before he sadly died.
Herbert and Dorothy had a daughter, Barbara Dorothy Allen, (my mother who is still living).
from being evacuated to Woolgar relatives in Henfield
during the War Years, the family lived in Newhaven and at
South Heighton, East Sussex.
Dorothy Kate suffered a long illness (she died of cancer) and was wheelchair bound for some time. Doctors told her she would never walk again but after being frightened by a mouse she proved them wrong!
Kate died on the 29th May 1950 (aged 42) at the
Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, Sussex.
She was buried in Newhaven Cemetary, Lewes Road, Newhaven.
