Born in 1916, Mollie Moran was ninety seven when she died in 2014 at her home in Dorset. Mollie grew up in Norfolk and was sent to London as a scullery maid at the age of just 14. Working 'downstairs' at stately homes such as Wood Hall and Wallington Hall during the 1930s, her teenage years were spent scrubbing floors and shovelling coal, but she always looked back on that time fondly. She even remained friends with Flo, the kitchen maid from the first household she worked in, throughout her life.
