     Lauretta Groskop was born on 10 February 1901 in 2 Smithfield, Stockton on Tees, Durham, England, her father was a ship rivetter.1,2 She was the daughter of Henry Groskop and Annie May. In the census of 31 March 1901 in Shakespeare Arms, 2 Smithfield, Stockton on Tees, Durham, England, she was listed as the daughter of Henry Groskop.3 In the census of 2 April 1911 in Shakespeare Arms, 2 Smithfield, Stockton on Tees, Durham, England, she was listed as the daughter of Henry Groskop she was at school.4 Lauretta was a singer and concert artist in and around Stockton during and post WW1, later a music teacher in Wales. A surviving programme of the Stockton Hippodrome shows she sang at a concert in 1917 to aid the Stockton and Thornaby Hospital Fund, seemingly a family charity.5 She married Robert Groskop, son of George Groskop and Martha Robinson, on 6 May 1924 in The Register Ofiice, Newport, Monmouthshire, Wales, Lauretta was married under the name of Greathead, giving her father as Henry Greathead a rivetter in shipbuilding yard. They were married by licence. Robert being a General Dealer and Lauretta a Professor of Music. They both gave The Queens Hotel, Newport as their address. The ceremony was witnessed by Charles Jefford, Marian Parry and Arthur C Parry. I would suggest that maybe Robert continued to look after Joseph and Godfrey Robert's sickly brothers.6 On 29 September 1939 in the National Register Lauretta was listed as living at 108 Phyllis Street, Barry, Glamorganshire, Wales with her husband Robert. Robert was a boiler maker living with his wife and sister in law.7 Her husband Robert died on 9 December 1960 in 108 Phyllis Street, Barry Island, Barry, Glamorganshire, Wales, aged 82.8,9 The will of Robert was proved by Lauretta Groskop his widow on 7 March 1961 in Glamorgan, his effects were valued at £2524 13s.8 Lauretta died on 6 June 1964 in 108 Phyllis Street, Barry Island, Barry, Glamorganshire, Wales, aged 63.8,10 The will of Lauretta was proved on 29 June 1964 in Llandaff to Zillah Groskop her sister and her estate was valued at £3877.8
