During her younger days, Olive Archer may have had a wide social circle, perhaps even a sweetheart but now, in death, she is utterly alone ... with no family or friends to mourn her at her funeral.
Nothing is known of any of her relatives - or whether she even has any and the local church minister appealed for mourners to attend her funeral.
An echo of the Beatles 1966 song Eleanor Rigby, only the Reverend Akasha Lonsdale and a funeral director are due to attend the service. Eleanor Rigby described the sad life of a woman who "died in the church and was buried along with her name. Nobody came".
Care Home workers found an old photo and described her as "absolutely stunning - a really beautiful woman. She looks like a film star".
