History

Elsa Mary Carroll (1898-1993) was educated at the Manchester High School for Girls. On leaving school she became a clerk with the Northern Universities Joint Matriculation Board where she worked until her retirement. She was however best known in the area for founding the 1st Withington Girl Guide Company (in 1918) which she led until her retirement in 1974. 1st Withington was notable for its support of local elderly people, a cause dear to Elsa Carroll's heart as she worked as a volunteer for the Abbeyfield Society, presenting it with the house next-door to the Carroll family's in Lapwing Lane. In 1979 she was awarded the MBE. Elsa Carroll died in 1993.
