Market Lavington Museum

The Mundy family – c. 1914


Mention the name Mundy to older residents in Market Lavington and many will have memories of Ken Mundy and Ken Mundy’s Shop. At the museum, we have a wonderful photograph, from over 100 years ago, showing older generations of the Mundy family.

We believe this dates from the time of the first world war. Still wearing Victorian style clothing, we see Mrs Mundy, who used to keep a grocer’s shop on the High Street. She is with her son and daughter. The young man, in military uniform, was the father of Ken Mundy, the cobbler. His sister, Elfie, married Harry Rainbird.
