I bought a wool work picture yesterday and it had written on the back
Mrs Mary P Nixen 1929.
Grange Lodge, Gateacre.
I wonder if anyone has a picture of the house or remember anything about Mrs Nixen (I think there is a picture of her).
All I can find out is that she was married to a W Nixen, a master of the SS GRETASTON, a 3,395grt, defensively-armed ship, sank in April 1917 in the Atlantic, possibly by a submarine. Date not known, but listed in April, 29 lives lost including the Master, Mr W Nixen who was 61 at the time.
