Dorothy Fanny Langton. She was born in Salcombe road, Newbury to Tom and Fanny Eliza Ford (nee Langton) therefore granddaughter of Thomas and Eliza Jane Langton. She had 1 brother Tom (my Father) and a sister Evelyn (who died last year aged 100). They moved to Stanley Road in 1939.
Sadly Dorothy was killed in 1944 when she was knocked off her bike aged 30.

I did not get to know her but understand from my parents how kind, caring and thoughtful she was. She was a talented shorthand typist and worked for the Newbury Mineral Company.
