chimney sweep

Charles Jarman's son, Herbert, was one of the last boys to go up the chimneys to sweep out the soot. Herbert Jarman (who was four years old in 1901) used to complain that he was always burning his bottom on the chimney walls! Herbert later went on to work in the minerals department for Stewart and Lloyds in Corby.
