My mother was born in the village in Pond Cottage opposite the church.  The youngest of seven children.
There used to be a natural pond in the front garden which supplied all the water for the village - now filled in, probably source intercepted and channeled elsewhere.
Both her parents are buried in the Churchyard of St Peter's.
Kate Barker - 1942
Edward Barker 1938
Also a child - Alice Blanche Hall (daughter of Kate) who died at 11 in around 1910 is buried in the plot but no headstone mentions her.  She died from Diabetes - not treatable then.
Their graves where covered in grass as nobody left nearby to tend them.  My husband and I found them and dug them out and refurbished them in the summer of 2009.

My connection with Cransford is way back in the distant past. My 5x grt.grandparents John Pipe and Mary Ralph were married there in1709 and where she was born  in about 1688. I attach a photo of the church taken in 2005.

My grandmother was a community midwife which I believe was an informal post. She got something like 5 shillings per confinement. Most of the children born in the village in the 1920s and 1930s were delivered by her. Sadly I never knew my grandparents.
