Constance (known as Lilian) was born in Tottenham, daughter of Edwin and Amelia. She was baptised at All Hallows Church, Tottenham on 25th June 1883. Her father was a school master. In 1888, the family moved to Hereford where Edwin opened a boarding school for boys. Amelia died the following year. After Edwin’s retirement, the family moved to Winchmore Hill near Ealing. Constance trained as a nurse and worked in London at the London Hospital in Whitechapel. In 1912, she enrolled as a midwife.
