The oldest person in Britain is from Barnsley.
That record had been held by Londoner Grace Jones (birthdate: December 7, 1899), but she sadly passed away, aged 113. She had been the sixth oldest person in the world.
Britain’s oldest person is now 113-years-old Ethel Lang.
She was born in Worsbrough Dale in 1900 – and has lived in Barnsley all her life.
