Eldest daughter of John and Margaret Nettlefold (eldest of 6 children; 5 girls and 1 boy).

Born in Birmingham in 1893, Eveleyn attended Edgbaston High School for girls before going on to study at Girton College in Cambridge. Evelyn married John Henry Crosskey in 1918, holding the reception in the grounds of Winterbourne. The Crosskeys were prominent members of the Unitarian Church in Birmingham, and John himself was an ex-serviceman from World War I.

Following in her father’s footsteps Evelyn became a City Councillor for Washwood Heath and began work to progress living conditions in the area. She also sat on the board for the Harborne Tenants Association at the Moor Pool estate. Evelyn had four children; Margaret, Roger, Henry and Philip.
