Noel Sloane

Noel was born in 1882 in Chester. Her parents were William and Marion. William was a white lead manufacturer. She had five sisters – Hannah Gertrude b1876, Eliza Constance b1879, Marion Jessie (Gipsy) b1880, Marguerita b1884 and Winifred b1895.

When she was born, the family lived in Guilden Sutton, near Chester, but had moved to Moore by the time of the 1891 census. They lived in ‘The Grove’, on Runcorn Road, moving to ‘The Beeches’ by the time of the 1911 census. William had his own white lead manufacturing company in Warrington.

The Absent Voters’ register of 1919 records that she was a nurse at the Military Hospital in Portsmouth. This counted as war service and she was awarded the usual medals.

No other records of Noel have been found. The rest of her life is a mystery.
