A Miss Mildred Barr served in the VAD Auxiliary Hospital at Hatton Grange, Shifnal, from October 1916 to January 1919. Her home address was given as The Vicarage, Codsall.

Jane Mildred Barr was born in 1876 in West Derby, Lancashire, the daughter of Charles George Barr. I have not been able to find a record of Jane’s mother, so presumably she died young. Among other schools, Jane attended the Girls’ Collegiate School in Sandgate Road, Folkstone, in Kent. By 1901, the family were at Acrise Rectory, Kent, and Jane and her father were living with her sister Emily G. S. Barr, along with two servants, Clara Ann Tubby and Sophia Copeland. By 1911, they had moved to Codsall Vicarage, Jane’s sisters full name was given as Emily Gertrude Sophia, and their two servants were Elizabeth Thomas and Sophia Copeland.

Jane does not appear to have married, as she died in March 1921 in Battle at the age of 45.
