Daisy Taylor had a very successful career, appearing all over the United Kingdom and as far afield as South Africa and the United States. She made a number of cylinder recordings for Edison in London on the eve of the First World War, ‘Let’s Pretend We’re Married‘ (a duet with Jack Charman) being an excellent example.’ ‘Archie! Archie! is another fine recording.

Miss Taylor died after a short illness on 23 March 1930 and was buried a few days later in West Norwood Cemetery.
