Great grandparents post office

My great grandparents Leonard Saunders (10 June 1892 to 16 March 1962) and his wife Elizabeth Margaret Mary Saunders (born Bromilow; 26 September 1887 to 31 May 1968) ran for many years the post office formerly on Westfield Street in St Helens, Lancashire. Leonard was also a master painter.

They had three children, Margaret (later Sister Mary Immaculata of the Order of the Good Shepherd), Thurston, and my grandad Henry.

During his service in the First World War, Leonard wrote many letters to his family, and in particular to his mother. An example from 1917 is shown.
