Patricia Barbara Hill was born on 2 June 1932, the daughter of Georgina Hill. Fostered at a very early age and grew up as Patsy Page in Wem, Shrewsbury, England.

 Pat married Clifford Mervyn Grocott on 23 June 1951.  Richard was soon born. Peter, Christopher and Anne followed.

In 1958 the family boarded the SS Strathaird at Tilbury to Emigrate to Western Australia, docking in Fremantle.

 Moved around the Great Southern, living in Ongerup and Gnowangerup  for 4 years chasing somewhere to live and work. 
Sharon then Robert were born and the Family  settled in Albany  Western Australia.

A very active time followed with schooling for 6 children and association with numerous social organisations as the children grew up and became more independent.

Passed away in Albany, Western Australia at the age of 86.

Pat loved to share and would be overjoyed if the family had the chance, even after her passing, to relive those memories and potentially share new ones.

This site has been created to reflect Pat’s desire that the photos and memories of her family and her adventures be made available to all of her children and their extended families.
