  • Notes 



    • Among other accomplishments, Annie Augusta Aldersey had three children of her own, and took an active role in community life.

      Her obituary appeared in the March 14, 1931 issue of the Advertiser:

      The Death occurred on Sunday at Church Stretton, of
      Mrs A. A. Aldersey, wife of Mr. Thos. Aldersey, of
      The Cottage, Shifnal. Deceased had resided in the town some 10 years, and was highly respected, being closely identified with the Mothers' Meeting and other good works, and being especially interested in the care of the inmates of Shifnal Poor-law Institution.

      Mrs Aldersey, who had been ill for some months, was getting better, and went to Church Stretton to recuperate. Unfortunately, her condition later grew worse, and on Saturday she became dangerously ill, passing away the following day, as stated. She was a daughter of the late Rev. W. B. Garnett-Botfield, Decker Hill, Shifnal, and had thus been associated with this district the whole of her life.

      She married the second son of Mr. Tom Aldersey, of Aldersey Hall, Chester, and spent some of the first years of her married life with her husband in America. Before coming to reside at Shifnal, Mr. and Mrs. Aldersey were resident for some 20 years at Meole Brace, Shrewsbury, where they were both prominent in the life of the district and church work.

      The coffin was brought by motor-hearse from Church Stretton on Tuesday, and lay in the chancel of the Parish Church until Thursday, when the funeral service was conducted by the vicar, assisted by the Rev, Wilfred J. Stanton, a lifelong friend of Mrs. Aldersey's family.
      A large number of wreaths were sent by relatives and friends from Meole Brace, as well as local residents and institutions, including one from the Shifnal Mothers' Meeting, many of whose members were present at the graveside. The bearers were Mr. Harry Jones, Mr A. Beamand (Decker Hill), Mr Broom (Beamish), Mr. H. Furniss (chauffeur at Crook Aldersey).

      The coffin was followed to the grave by the bereaved husband, Mr. Thos. Aldersey, her daughter, [Sister Gladys Valentine Aldersey] who is a sister of the Community of the Holy Cross, Mr. Walter Aldersey (son), and Mrs. W. Aldersey, Major and Mrs. W. D. Garnett-Botfield, Beamish (brother and sister-in-law), Captain Ralph Aldersey (nephew), Major T. G. N. Bardwell (nephew), Mrs Melvillle Legge (niece, who also represented her father the Rev. Charles R. Garnett-Botfield, prevented by illness from attending), Dr. Melville Legge, Mrs. F. Corbett-Winder (niece), Capt. Corbett-Winder, Col. J.R. Howard McLean (Aston Hall), Mr. H. Revell Phillips, Col. the Hon. F. C. Weld-Forester (Decker Hill), Mrs. Bannister (Caynton), Mrs Mackay, Mr. Jeffe (Meole Brace), and the Matron of the Cottage Hospital. Much sympathy is expressed with the husband, two sons and daughter, who are left to mourn their loss.

      Annie Augusta's Will named her husband as the primary beneficiary, and after his death, the residual estate was to go to her sons Francis Garnett Aldersey and Walter Massie Aldersey in equal shares. An income of fifteen pounds a year was bequeathed to her daughter Gladys Valendine Aldersey.
