Little is known of Ann’s life. She was born in Harwich, Essex and had at least one son: William Cranston (1853-1937).  In 1871 she was running the bathhouse in Mumby, Lincolnshire (then known as Mumby cum Chapel).  Mumby is a village between Mablethorpe and Skegness and it not known how long she ran the bathhouse there.  By 1891 she had moved to live with her son William and his family at 141 Gwydir Street. William was a coal agent, married to Julia and they had one son.  Also living at the house was Julia’s mother Sarah Parris.  Ann died at Gwydir Street in 1895.
