Annie Hartley

Early life:
Annie Hartley was the youngest of two children, born on 18th August 1884 to William, of Keighley, and Sally Hartley of Oakworth/Haworth. She had an older brother, Joseph, who was seven years her senior.

In 1891 the family lived at 16 Edward Street in Bingley. William was a wool comb maker, and Joseph was working as an errand boy.

The 1891 Census

By 1901 they had moved to 15 Industrial Street and William had changed occupation to become a registrar of births, marriages and deaths. Joseph had also changed occupation and was working as a textile designer, with his own account. Annie did not have an occupation listed.

The 1901 Census

By 1911 Joseph had moved out of the family home, having married and had two children in the intervening years. As well as still being a registrar, William was also a vaccination officer. Neither Annie or her mother had an occupation. They were still living at 15 Industrial Street.

War service and later life:
In January 1918 Annie started working at Keighley War Hospital as a clerk, and continued in this role until June 1919.

She never married. The 1939 Register shows her single and living alone at 69 Park Road in Bingley, and she was working as a registrar of births, marriages and deaths - I wonder if she took over the role from her father?

The 1939 Register

She died on 8th January 962 at St. John's Hospital in Keighley.
