Mrs Gladys Mary Chandler, has died in Aslockton Hall Nursing Home, Aslockton, Nottinghamshire. She was 98.

Following her marriage to Bill Chandler, they made their home at Evergreen Farm, Redmile.

In 1944 they moved to Manor Farm, Muston. They had two children, Robert (deceased) and Peter, followed by four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
