Betty, who was born in Goring, Sussex but moved to Royston in her late teens worked in a garage where she met her husband Willam Arthur, also known as Les.

The pair had a daughter named Beryl.

Eventually they bought a grocery shop on the corner of Walsworth and Radcliff Road in Hitchin, which the couple ran until Les retired.
