Thank you for these.

My understanding was that she was a "Nippy" -  a waitress in one of the Lyons Corner Houses that were popular in the 1920s and 30s, but there is no reason why she shouldn't have been a Mental Nurse.  There must have been plenty of opportunities at that time with the wounded from the Great War. 

A desire to look after the sick and needy runs on that side of this family.  Her daughter born two years later, did Hospital work and one of her grand-daughters currrently runs a shelter for the homeless in London.

Thank you for the help.
