Biography

Ernie Mayne was born in Topsham, Devon, in 1871. During a lifetime on the Halls, he played a range of pantomime dames, including Mother Goose. He was responsible for some 180 songs between 1898 and 1928. He weighed in at about 20 stone, had red hair and a bad temper! How do I know? He was my grandfather. He died in 1937, which was before I was born, so I’m basing this on my father’s and uncles’ memories.

He died of complications following an appendectomy in the Royal Sussex Hospital, Brighton, Sussex in 1937, and was laid to rest in the graveyard at nearby Shoreham by Sea, near the pub he owned in his later years.
