Elizabeth Grant’s work as a Warburtons Bakery assistant

Elizabeth started work as a bakery assistant in Yorkshire. She was 15 years old and it was 1947. She was waiting until she was old enough to start a nursing course. Her work involved making pastry pie cases, cake decorating, transporting food to the shop, keeping the shop stocked up and cleaning it. The kitchen was downstairs and the bakery was upstairs. Most days went well except for the day Elizabeth fell upstairs with a tray of jam tarts. There was a lot more cleaning to do that day.The bakery was upstairs and the kitchen was downstairs.
