Lily’s Story

My name is Lily and I am 10 years old. Both my grandparents fought in Ww2. My ancestors on my mum’s side came across with the Huguenots having been persecuted for their religion. They were weavers and lived near Eton. My great grandma’s grandfather was Queen Victoria’s coachman.

-Lily, Eltham
