Mabel was born on 26/9/1889 and lived at 7, Ferrers Road and later at Riseholme, Hampton Road, Oswestry. She was single.
She trained at Poplar and Stepney Sick Asylum Hospital from 1911-1914 and continued to work there as a nurse until after the war when she trained and qualified as a midwife.
In 1922 Mabel became a born again Christian and joined the Pentecostal Missionary Union. She applied to become a missionary and in January 1926 set sail (Third class) on the SS St Alban to Brazil, a two month long voyage. Unfortunately she became ill very soon after her arrival and died in October 1926.
A telegram to the London office of the Pentecostal Mission Union simply stated:
“Gallant dead. Five others well.”
