|My grandparents were named Martin. They were in the
sweets business, making their own sweets, and running the Grand Theatre
Some of their descendants were in the sweets
business for many years. A cousin, Bob Martin, sold his own sweets
in the Wolverhampton Retail Market for many years.
My mother, Joyce Mary Martin, took over the Grand Theatre
Sweet Stores when her mother, died in 1913. Joyce married in 1914,
becoming Mrs. O'Kane. The sweet shop became a family affair.
