In Loving Memory of OLIVE MAY BAILEY
Who died Sept 25th 1922 aged 20 years

Also ELIZABETH NAOMI beloved mother of the above
Who died Sept 4th 1940

“To live in the heart of those we love is not to die.”

Elizabeth Naomi Bailey (née Edwards) (15 May 1876 – 4 September 1940)

Elizabeth was born in Dullingham, Cambridgeshire.  Her parents were William and Harriet Edwards, and William worked as a carpenter. Aged 14 years old she was in service to the Quince family in Woodham, Suffolk (1891).  She had  two daughters Ella Alice Edwards (1896-1988)  and Constance Stella (1899-1962). She married George Arthur Bailey (1872-) in early 1900. George worked as a groom (non-domestic); in 1901 the couple were living ‘near the Green’ in Burrough Green, a small village 5 miles mile south of Newmarket with her two children, who had born before they were married.

Elizabeth and George had a further two daughters Olive May (1902-1922) and Muriel Annie (1904-1950). In 1911 the family were living in Bonsall, Derbyshire where George was working as a stableman on a stud farm.  Ella and Constance had taken the surname of Bailey by this time.  George appears to have worked overseas as part of his job, and there are records of him sailing to Canada in 1921, and from Durban in South Africa in 1925.

By at least 1922 the family were living at 2 Antwerp Cottages, Thoday Street in Cambridge. In 1939 Elizabeth was still living there, but was a widow by this time.  She died the following year, at home in Thoday Street aged 64 years old.

Olive May Bailey (1902 – 25 September 1922)

Olive was born in Borough Green, and later lived in Bonsall, Derbyshire with her parents and sisters. She died at the family home in Thoday St, Cambridge aged 20 years old.
