  • Really very sad to read that Marjorie Fielding died in middle age and of cancer. She was a wonderful character actress and, had she lived longer, would have carried on playing more memorable roles in her later years.

  • I was intrigued by Marjorie after seeing her on the Lavender Hill Mob this morning! It appears she was actually born in 1890, not 1892, as per the FreeBMD and General Register Office birth index.
