Inscription

In Loving Memory of LUCY MARTHA the beloved wife of ARTHUR JOSEPH ANDREWS
who died Sep. 26. 1905. Aged 30 years

“With uplifted arms she passed away
Seeing Jesus Christ her saviour
We hope to meet again one day
If God grant us this favour.”

Lucy Martha Andrews (née Rickett) (1875 – 26 September 1905)

Lucy was the youngest daughter of railway signalman George Rickett and his wife Emma (née Hopwood).  She grew up at 1 Terrace Lane and after her father died in 1878 lived there with her mother and siblings.  In 1891 Lucy was working as a parlourmaid for university professor William Watts and living at 58 Bateman Street before marrying Arthur Joseph Andrews (1871-1925) in 1898.

Arthur worked as an outfitter’s manager and the couple had one daughter:  Ethel Doris (1902-2004) . In 1901 the family were living at 68 Chelmsford Road in Walthamstow, but returned to live at 13 Perowne Street. Lucy died at the Sanatorium aged 30 years old, presumably of T.B.

Arthur married for a second time in 1906 to Ellen Ison (1877-1928) and they had three more children.  They lived at Perowne Street until at least 1911 and then moved to Hauxton where Arthur died aged 54 years old.
