LIVES – EILEEN MARY ASCROFT

Researched and written by Jeremy Palmer

Here we tell the story of the journalist Eileen Ascroft, whose childhood memories of Effingham formed the basis for her earliest articles in The Daily Mirror. We look at her career and life, as well as those of her parents Robert and Winifred Ascroft who had associations with Effingham throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
