The Club probably here referred to the local ‘Pig Club’ whose membership subscriptions contributed to insurance to cover the loss of a pig. Will was the treasurer. Another local savings/insurance scheme, the ‘Sick and Dividing Club’, helped with necessities for those sick or off work. At the end of a year surplus funds in either club would be divided amongst members. (See ‘A Yellowbelly Childhood’, Frank Forster, Seacroft Press, 2007, p74.)

Mrs Fletcher owned ‘Lenton Lodge’ which Will and May rented.
