    Notes 
    • Hermione, the youngest daughter, went to Germany and it was there that she met and married a German soldier, Rudy Bretz. This alienated her from her family, but he died two years after they were married and the family was then very sorry for the way they had abandoned her.
      After her husband died she went to live in Switzerland. She spoke 4 languages and worked as an interpreter for a pharmaceutical company in Basel. She tried her hand at writing children's stories but they were never published.
      In their later years, Hermione visited Cicely and they corresponded. They also corresponded regularly with Mollie in Canada. [5]
    • Remained in Germany throughout WW2. Not troubled as she was considered to be Irish. [4]
