As a footnote I discovered the following details concerning Miss Isabel Lynn who lived at 28 Spring Hill in 1944. The Estate would have been worth over 400,000 in 2002

The Sheffield Telegraph Friday October 2nd 1953 page 7


For most of her life, Miss Isabel F. Lynn worked for St George's Church Sheffield - always behind the scenes

Yesterday her solicitors announced that the shy church worker who started at the Sunday School over 70 years ago had left 7,331 - all she had - to church funds.

Miss Lynn who lived at 28 Spring Hill died two months ago aged 87. She left 100 to the Church Missionary Society and all the rest to the income of the incumbent of the parish of St George with St Stephen.


This will be paid to the Sheffield Diocesan Trust and Board of Finance to be invested in trustee securities. If the money cannot be used for the incumbent of the parish it will go to the income of any stipendiary curates of the parish as the Bishop of Sheffield shall direct adds the will

Mr W. E. Dyson and life long friend said yesterday "Miss Lynn would never take a leading part in the work of the church but was always working for it in one way or another - teaching in Sunday School and visiting.
