Transcript:

When we got married we went to live with my husband’s parents in Edgware and we had a bedroom and a living room that we had to share everything else. Well then my son was born and that wasn’t too bad that carried on alright and then I was going, expecting my daughter and it just didn’t seem like a lot of room so we got in touch with the Hendon borough asking if there was any chance of us having a flat or house and they said no we’d have to have at least 4 children before they’d move us and then a week later we had a letter asking us if we would be interested in coming out to Hemel Hempstead.
