from Untitled: Walter J.E. Elliott memoir, page 10:
Uncle Bob was the Village Baker, his shop was just across the road from Elliott’s Stores, he kept his horse and van in the stables at the rear of Pa’s shop […] Uncle Bob had a new house built on the site of the Village Hall called The Room. The Village Band practised in The Room, sometimes Fred and I crept in to listen to the playing. Stephen Gillham - Fred’s father - was the Bandmaster he played the Uphonium [sic], Tom Gillham the Cornet, Bill Mitten the Kettledrum, of course there were other musicians.
