It was a full house when May Chappell gathered her family for her 88th birthday celebrations last weekend.

An astonishing 104 direct descendants joined the party in south London.

May’s ten children, 37 grandchildren, 56 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild all came to wish her many happy returns.

The festivities included family quizzes and lottery game where members of the family picked a year from 1924-2012 to win a prize.

But the best present of all was the announcement that Mrs Chappell has another great-great-grandchild on the way.

Her daughter, Mary Lowe, 66 from Wallington said: ‘It was lovely - we all had a really good day.

'We think there were 168 of us; one or two we would class as friends but most were family.

'Up to a few years ago she would still make cakes for the grandchildren but now there is so many of us.
