In 1917 in the Herefordshire & Shropshire Directories, the proprietor of the Temperance Hotel at 50 Etnam St. Leominster was Wm. Poiner. Sometime after that (before 1928 for sure) my grandparents, Charles and Martha Owens ran the hotel under the name of the Waverley Hotel. Charles died in 1932 and Martha continued with the hotel until her death in 1940. At some time after that, the hotel was converted to a retirement or nursing home.
