The Recollections of Clementina May

Edited by Janet Owen, Introduction and Notes by Brenda Griffith-Williams

Clementina (Clemmie) May, the youngest child of Henry and Sarah Elder of Topsfield Hall, Crouch End, who married Frank May, Chief Cashier of the Bank of England in 1879, recalled her memories a few months before her death in 1942, aged 92.

Her memories of Topsfield Hall (now Topsfield Parade), its grounds, and the increasingly urban environment around it, provide us with a ‘through the looking glass’ view of life in Victorian Crouch End.
