I first saw this ghost when I was 5 years old in my auntie's house and my mothers growing up place. This ghost is known to my family as the ghost of the toilet, I know, cheesy but I'm calling her woman in black.
Well one night I needed the toilet so I went, as you do and I heard the stairs creaking outside so I got up (off the toilet, lol) and went to see what it was, when I looked outside and saw an old woman in black sitting on the stairs outside the toilet looking up at me and smiling. She was very old but you could tell she was kind; she wore this long black dress, which looked Victorian, and black lace gloves, which she held a white peace lily. She had grey hair tied up in a bun and a small black hat on her crown. It looked like she was at a funeral.
At the time I thought it was normal that a woman was on the stairs every time I went toilet, I also thought as I was growing up that it was my imagination but 1 year ago when I was watching most haunted with my mum I asked her if she saw the woman on the stairs and my mum said that she saw her many times, my mums description and mine were exactly the same. My mum said that she only appears at night.
I looked at the census in the library to see who lived at the house many years ago and one said that a woman called Jacqueline Croakter used to live at the house with her husband, her husband died in the house and after his funeral she committed suicide on the stairs. I don't know it this was her but its kind of freaky that someone died in the house.
Ever since, I have believed in ghosts, the one I saw over and over again as a child was very kind but you never know what lurks out there
