Nell - Queen of Northfield - RIP

It’s with heavy hearts that we have to share the news that the wonderful Nell of Ash Grove in Northfield, sadly passed away peacefully yesterday morning (Wednesday 19th December). Nell had recently celebrated her 106th birthday and was an extremely popular character. She would often be seen shopping and enjoying a natter on Northfield high street - and just this summer was dancing at ’Northfield Beach’. If anyone would like to leave a message of condolence, or share memories of Nell, please do so in the comments, they will all be passed on to her family. Northfield Community Partnership

  1. I knew nell quiet well ,, I cut her hair for quite a while & she used to come in to my salon for a cuppa & a chat , she gave me a fascinating history of Northfield,told me she moved to Northfield in 1927 when she was 15 ,, I will cherish & re tell all the stories she told me ,,, what an incredible life she lead ,, so upset to hear she’s no longer here ,, it was an honour to have known her mark 😕

  2. Iamnso sad to hear of Nell passing away! I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with her at the Marriott hotel for afternoon tea! We were discussing our lives and learnt all about her granny sending her husband’s suit to the pawn shop..Made me really laugh. She was a fabulous character and I will miss her dearly X
