You asked if I could discover why Olive came to be in North Wales. I can not be definitive on this, but after putting together some fragments, I think it was because she was staying with her sister Violet Alice Ione Clayton (nee de Thoren). Violet had married Gerald Edward Cririe Clayton in 1908. Gerald was a barrister and he and his wife lived in Penarwel, Llanbedrog, North Wales. In the Great War Gerald was a 2nd Lieutenant with the Royal Marines, dieing on 5 September 1915 and is buried at the local cemetery at Llanbedrog. It is likely that Olive went to stay with her widowed sister to assist with Violet's children - Ralph, Aymar and Evelyn. Violet eventually sold her house in Penarwel in 1926 just prior to her remarriage to William Eatherley.
Hope this is useful. Best wishes, Kay
I have just come across a reference to Olive in the Deaths part of the BMD section of the North Wales Chronicle dated 19th October 1917. It confirms she died of septic poisoning at Penarwel, Llanbedrog.No reference to Hertingfordbury.
I can confirm that she was buried at Llanbedrog.
