Childhood

Stewart John Marshall was born on 7th March 1899 at 25 Cowper Street, Luton, Bedfordshire. He was the son of a straw hat sewer named Elizabeth Marshall, formerly Kempson, and her husband John Marshall, a hat blocker and bricklayer. Stewart, who was generally known as Jack, was the third of five children.

The family did not stay long at Cowper Street. By the 1901 census they were living at 33 Albert Road - the same street Jack's paternal grandparents were living in at the time. By 1911 they had moved to 44 Cambridge Street, which was the same street that Jack's maternal grandparents were living in at the time.

Jack's brother Ralph was killed in action during the First World War in 1917. Jack is also believed to have served in the army in the war, although his service records have not been found.

Jack married Rose Nicholls from neighbouring Harpenden in 1925. He was 26 and she 23. They married at Harpenden parish church. After their marriage they settled in Luton, where they had a daughter in 1929 and a son in 1933. By 1933 they were living at 41 Trent Road. This was a relatively newly built council house. Some time between 1939 and 1949 they moved two doors down to 37 Trent Road, which was slightly larger. Jack worked as a fettler at an iron foundry, whilst Rose was a canteen cook.

Jack's father John died just after the Allied victory in Europe in the Second World War. Both Jack's children married in the 1950s, and he knew all four of his grandchildren, who were all born between 1954 and 1956.

Some time between 1957 and 1959 Jack and Rose left 37 Trent Road and moved to 3 Poets Green, a newly-built house to the west of Luton. Having been council tenants for most of their lives at Trent Road, they managed to buy the house at Poets Green, which was to be their home for the rest of their lives.
