Looking for my Grandma's family - Lester from Kent, England

Query by savanna

I'm very new to this but have always wondered about my Grandma's family on my father's side. Her name was Mabel Lester. She died before I was born. I've seen only three photographs of her. She married my Granddad in Leeds, Yorkshire I believe. His name was Charles Slater. Date? Possibly around 1925.
Any rumblings? I'd love to know more about her.

Dear Savanna,
It's six years since you posted this, and I don't know if you still subscribe to this site. However, I have been looking up my maternal great aunt, Mabel Lester and have come across your post of 2009.
My grandfather was Frederick Lester. He had a sister called Mabel who married Charles Slater and they lived in Leeds. Their son, Jack, joined the West Yorkshire Police Force, I believe. He is my mother's first cousin. She has never met him.
Mabel and Charles also had a daughter, Doreen, who nursed Mabel until she died from cancer. I think she lost her husband as well, and then she committed suicide - a tragic story.
I can tell you a lot more about our family, if you think this is the right Mabel. I think it must be. Please message back if you get this.
Best wishes
