Others are described in terms of their relationship to people already known to the Guild: 'Miss Nellie Baker: Cousin of Stella W's mother'.

Charles Back's entry gives an insight into how some people survived in the period: 'Nearly blind. Native of Cornwall. Has played the tin whistle in the street. Now has blind pension'.

Sleepy sickness is also mentioned - the after-effects of an illness which swept Britain and the US in the 20s and 30s, and then abruptly disappeared.
