Record details:

Biographical details Lloyd was born at Exning near Newmarket, the daughter of Charles Patteson Lloyd, an officer in The Buffs (East Kent Regiment), and Aileen Rosa Lloyd (née Merry). Her birth was registered during the first quarter of 1898. The family later lived at Woodcote near Reading. During the 1930s Lloyd was at sea on sailing vessels in the grain trade owned by Gustaf Erikson of Finland. This was initially as a passenger and later as a crew member. She was a sailmaker on the three-masted steel barque PENANG ex ALBERT RICKMERS (1905), when this vessel was torpedoed and lost with all hands off Ireland on 8 December 1940. Her brother Maurice Charles Humphrey Lloyd was an officer in the Royal Navy and died after being severely wounded during the attacks on Zeebrugge and Ostend in April 1918.
