Daisy was my grandmother. I didn't know her too well but by all accounts she was a strong and principled lady. According to my cousin she was in service in London where she rose through the ranks to become a cook. Perhaps she started off in Bristol then moved to London. She married Harry in 1921 at age 28 so she had an independent life before starting her own family. It sounds like many working class girls from the Forest went into service. How did they get these jobs? Was there some kind of recruitment agency for domestic staff?
