Grindey family

Mrs Gladys Grindey died on 21 June 2007 aged 88. She and her husband Arthur had one daughter, Joan. They farmed Adshead’s Barn Farm, as it was known in earlier times, for very many years. They had a dairy herd and bottled their own milk. This was delivered to the local houses by Mr Grindey’s sister using a small purpose made trolley designed to carry a single milk crate.
