Frances together with her husband, ‘Doc’ Roper, were keen archaeologists in their spare time and worked on the many sites in West Sussex.
She had a passion for family history. Her early research with records of members of the family have been invaluable in compiling the content of this website.
Frances trained as a hospital pharmacist, specialising in psychiatric medicine. When I first knew her, she was doing a series of locums in the big psychiatric hospitals which were common in the 1950/60's.
