An interview with Daisy Noakes

Ovingdean Hall School, where Daisy Noakes worked as a maid

Daisy Noakes got a job ‘in service’ at the age of fourteen. She worked as a maid at a ‘school for young gentleman’ in Ovingdean village.

I interviewed Daisy in 2000 for an oral history book I was producing as part of the millennium celebrations for Ovingdean village. At the time she was 91, and although she had completely lost her sight, she was still managing to live independently in a flat in Brighton.
