Katheen Munday was the second daughter of John Hill Munday, who was a partner in a firm of solicitors in London. They lived at The Mendips, Surbiton, Surrey. She was educated at Cheltenham Ladies College, but like most middle class women of her generation did not receive a higher education, nor did she seek employment after finishing school. She was a very accomplished wood carver and artist and received a medal for her fine work (see photographs). She met James Denton Barker when she was on holiday at Ilkley and they married just before the outbreak of the first World War.
