Person Details
01 Mar 1880
92 Carlton Road Sneinton Nottingham
Known by his second name Lawrence, he was the husband of Annie Eleanor (née Pick) Mortimer and the father of Mary, Winifreda, Edward Lawrence, Getrude, Monica and Bernard Mortimer. In 1911 they lived at 102 and 104 Sneinton Dale Nottingham but moved to 37 Sneinton Boulevard Nottingham. (Evening Post January 18, 1917)
Philip's grandson Bob Mortimer notes 'He was as skilled French polisher by trade, but he took over the management of the off licence at 102, Sneinton Dale, from his father in law, Edward Pick, a retired police sergeant. He left the off licence shop, on the presumption that the beer supply from the brewery would be prioritised for the troops, after the war started. He moved his family to 37, Sneinton Boulevard, between the start of the war and October 1915.'
