Else and anna Stransky from Vienna #austria-czech


Daniela Torsh
 

Thanks to quite a few people who have helped me uncover more information about some distant cousins of my mother's family.
 Else Stransky was born 1882 in Podmokly today Decin in  Czechia. Her mother Lotti and my ggrandmother Wilhelmine LOEBL were sisters in Most, Czechia. Else moved to Vienna with her husband Emil, a banker born in Jablonec,  Bohemia and they had four children there.
One was a daughter Anna born 1907,  who in 1939 fled to London with her mother.
Else and Anna stayed in England until they died in 1975 and 1993 respectively. They were interned for about a year at Rushen camp on the Isle of Man from 1940 and  left without restrictions for Glasgow and then became domestics in Surrey for the Butcher family of five. Later they moved to the Borough of Wandsworth.
They were both cremated at Putney Vale and I now have records for that.
I want to thank Mike Frankl, Martin Dostal, Barrie Blissett-Turner of the Putney Vale crematorium and my friend here in Sydney Robyn Dryen plus an anonymous correspondent.
