Ella Meacock (Hill), 1927-2021

It is with great sadness that we learnt that Ella Meacock, Class of 1944, had passed away in November, aged 94.

Ella attended LEH during WW2 and recalled avoiding enemy bombing on the way to and from school, and working with fellow pupils at a farming camp near Broxbourne.  She kept in touch with school friends Betty and Maureen throughout her life.

After the war, Ella married Alan Meacock, who had attended the Grammar School next door to LEH.  They had three children and moved, with Alan's job, from Surrey to Newcastle, Madrid and Sydney. 

On retirement, they moved to Bath and finally to Shaldon in Devon, to live near their daughter. She leaves behind daughter, Sarah, and four grandchildren. We send them all heartfelt condolences.
