Dumbleton's daughter, Chris Bemand spoke about the birthday festivities, saying the twin always thought of each other.

She told the BBC:

"They spend a lot of time thinking about each other and I think there is that thought-bond there.
"And they have both been a little bit unwell and we made the decision to get them down to see each other on Sunday and they are both incredibly different having seen each other. It was very low key... they had a cheese sandwich and a reminisce."
"And we are just having a quiet day at home and we will perhaps go out to have a toasted teacake at a local tea house and that will be enough for mum."

On the secret behind the twin's longevity, Bemand said of her mum:

"She always says the same thing when I ask her - they didn't have a lot, but what they had they really appreciated.
"And I think it is that bit about a slightly simpler life, where you value what you have got and you don't fret for the things you haven't got."
