On this day - 21st July

1940 - My brother Michael Jeffrey was born at the Bearstead Memorial Hospital, Hampton, Twickenham, Middlesex. At the time, my parents and I were living at 150 King Edward Road, Hachney, London, E9.

Michael was very ill from birth and eventually died on 8th June 1941, aged just 10 months, in the County Council Emergency Hospital, Old Windsor. The cause of death is recorded as:
1 (a) Cardiac failure
   (b) TB Meningitis
2       TB Broncho Pneumonia

At the time of Michael's death we were living at 34 Sprinfield Road, Windsor wth my grandfather on my mum's side. My grandmother having died on 18th December 1940. It must have been a very painful time for my mother.
