Looks like they both moved to Scotland in later life.

I was looking for images of paintings by Beryl Tittensor and in the results of a Google search came across this thread. The daughter and granddaughter  of Beryl Tittensor  nee Pickering run a wee shop and cafe in Aberlady called The Old Bakehouse Cafe in Sew in Stitches. The fact that Beryl was an artist came up in conversation  with Beryl's daughter. Apparently  she has paintings in a number of public collections in the UK. She lived and worked in Cambridge for quite some time before moving to Aberlady in East Lothian Scotland.  I haven't  managed to see any of her paintings  on line or otherwise.

Hello Joe and welcome to Rootschat  :)

I remember having a good search for artwork online at the time but had no luck.  I didn't try Beryl Pickering.

Hi, my first post/reply on this site. Not sure if this thread is still active but I knew Beryl Tittensor, as I grew up in Aberlady from age 4 to 18 and both attended watercolour classes as a mid/teenager in Berylís gallery/ art shop  (now the cafe/ sewing shop referred to in another reply) and bought art supplies / paper, brushes and watercolours- from the shop. I still have some of the paints over 40 years later (Iím not very prolific!). Beryl was a lovely, quiet and friendly woman and a great teacher, and finding this thread has brought back very happy memories of my youthful years in Aberlady. Iím now inspired to visit the cafe post-lockdown!

Nice picture, wonder where it is? looks like one of Telford's Parliamentary Kirks.

Skoosh.

It looks Perthshire-ish to me. Definitely not Aberlady  :)

PS - I've seen so many of those kirks in the Highlands.  And welcome to Rootschat, scottishnatureboy :)

Never heard of Telford Parliamentary Kirks before but just looked them up and I do now.  It is a lovely painting, wherever it was painted. 
Beryl Pickering/Tittensor's daughter and granddaughter run the cafe/sewing shop in Aberlady.  The daughter is a textile artist herself.
The cafe is still shut according to the last post on their website.
When I am next there I will share some of the things I have read on the thread, which I am sure they will be interested in hearing
