Joan Ethel Greathead née Tunley
     Joan Ethel Tunley was born on 7 October 1919 in 32 MacReson Road, Hampstead, London, England.1 She was the daughter of William Thomas Tunley and Ada Emily Banthorp. Her birth was registered at Hampstead Register Office on 9 October 1919 by her father William who described himself as an electrician. Joan lived with her parents initially in 10 and then 22 Gordon Road, Finchley.2

She was an enthusiastic girl guide during her teenage years. Joan worked for Debenhams in 1935 and as a civil servant until 1942.2

On 29 September 1939 in the National Register Joan Ethel Tunley was listed as living at 10A Gordon Road, Finchley, London, England with her parents Joan was a civil servant typist.3 She married Ronald Greathead, son of Thomas Greathead and Marion Stewart, on 3 October 1942 in St Marys, Finchley, London, England, after the banns had been read. The ceremony was witnessed by both fathers. Thomas Greathead a naval architect and William Thomas Tunley an electrical engineer. Ronald was an Army Officer - cadet and gave his address as 20 West Avenue, Barrow in Furness. Joan gave her address as 10 Gordon Road N3.4 They moved shortly after Timothy was born in 1951 to Surrey living at 61 Cheshire Gardens, Chessington and later April Cottage, 25 Thorkhill Gardens, Thames Ditton; Cherry Trees, 25 Richmond Close, Fetcham; Rye View, Links Close, Ashtead. Then they moved to Sussex, 9 Ilex Way, Middleton; 4 Stablefields, Alleyne Way, Elmer, and finally 35 The Gilberts, Rustington.2

Her husband Ronald died on 4 August 1989 in Rustington, Sussex, England, aged 70 whilst swimming in the sea off Rustington and was taken to Worthing Hospital and declared dead on arrival A post mortem was held without autopsy and the cause of death given as mycardial infarection and coronary artery atheroma.5 Joan was very sad after her husband died so suddenly in 1989 that she spent most weekends living with her daughter Jan. She also moved out of the flat where she had lived with Ron in Rustington to a warden assisted flat in Elmer where she was much happier. The top floor flat looked straight out to the sea so, as the doctor had told her when he died she could see the "sea horses" or waves and they looked like Ron smiling at her. This wonderful feeling is now experienced by her daughter when she sees the ripples on any water, anywhere she feels very close to both her parents.2

Joan died on 23 October 1992 in 24 Villa Plage, Elmer Road, Middleton on Sea, Sussex, England, aged 73.6,7 Her death was registered on 26 October 1992 by her son Timothy, who lived at 49 Moresby Avenue, Tolworth, Surrey in the Chichester Register Office. The cause of her death was Carcinomatosis and Carcinoma of breast. Her body was cremated on 29 October 1992 in Chichester, Sussex, England, and her ashes scattered at sea later that month in a similar place to where her husband's ashes had been scattered three years earlier.2 The will of Joan was proved on 10 December 1992 in London. Her effects were described as not exceeding £125,000.8

In the census of 6 June 1841 in Travellers Rest, Seaton Carew, Durham, England, He was an agricultural labourer, I assume Travellers Rest was a lodging house.3 In the census of 30 March 1851 he was listed as the lodger of John Ward a joiner born in Swaleworth, Yorkshire. William was also a joiner.4 He married Sarah Brown, daughter of Peter Brown and Isabella Baker, on 4 July 1852 in Stockton Weslyan Methodist Chapel, Hartlepool, Durham, England, William was aged thirty-one and Sarah was aged twenty-five. The ceremony took place in the Weslyan Chapel, Hartlepool by Henry Smallwood and was witnessed by George Graham and Sarah Barker. William was described as a builder in the Newcastle Courant.5,6 William was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 7 April 1861 in 16 Anthony Street, Stranton, West Hartlepool, Durham, England, William was a joiner.7 William was listed as the head of the family of on the census of 2 April 1871 in 16 Anthony Street, Stranton, West Hartlepool, Durham, England, William was a joiner.

I do not know who she is, William had a grandaughter called Sarah but she was aged 13 not 31 and she is listed on the census with her parents. It would be impossible for William to have a grandaughter aged 31.10 He died on 1 April 1898 in 2 Brunton Street, Hartlepool, Durham, England, aged 78 from Bronchitis exhaustion, His son George registered his death.11
