During the Blitz, Elsie took her daughters Hilda and Shelagh to Blackpool until the bombs stopped. Shelagh was bullied at school and entertained the idea of pursuing a singing career but decided not to when during her first performance the men in the audience jeered at her and made obscene remarks. Choosing a job in the canteen at Elliston's Raincoat Factory alongside her sister instead, Shelagh left the shop in 1957 to work at a girls' boarding school in Surrey.
