Emily Farley in the pinafore dress, was born on the 15th of January 1895 at Mint Cottages just down Park Road in the distance. Emily was married in 1919 to George Garbutt, a Canadian soldier in WWI who was decorated with the Military Medal. They moved to Saskatchewan Canada and farmed until his death in 1944.

In 1946 Emily married Horace Payne in Calgary, Canada, and lived there until her death in 1986. Her sister, Rose Farley Finch, continued to live in Mint Cottages until her death in 1986.

Emily's brother, William, was a WWI casualty and is one of the 'Men of Banstead' listed on the War Memorial just a hundred yards from where this photo was taken.
