Inscription

In Loving Memory of SARAH ANN wife of the Rev EDWARD CHADWICK of Thornhill Lees
daughter of WILLIAM BATES of Oldham and Old Trafford 1830 – 1922

DORA daughter of Rev EDWARD & SARAH ANN CHADWICK 1859 – 1943

Sarah Ann Chadwick (née Bates) (1830 12 July 1922)

Sarah was the daughter of William and Sally (née Chadwick) Bates and was born in Oldham. Her father was a wealthy cotton merchant, who by 1851 had retired and turned to farming in Old Trafford. Sarah married  Rev. Edward Chadwick (1828-1901) on 20 April 1857 at Manchester Cathedral.

Edward was a Cambridge graduate who served as curate of Hulme (1851-1856), curate of Rochdale (1856-1857) and then Vicar of Thornhill Lees,  Dewsbury (1857-1901).  Edward and Sarah lived at the Vicarage in Thornhill Lees and had four children: Rev. William Edward Chadwick (1858-1934), Dora (1859-1943), Rev. James Murray (1864-1938) and Hector Munro (1870-1947).  Edward  Chadwick died in March 1901 and was buried in Dewsbury.

All three of her sons had studied at Cambridge and youngest son Hector was a fellow at Clare College, so by 1911 Sarah had moved to live at 3 Gresham Road, Cambridge with Dora and Hector. She died at Gresham Road aged 92 years old.

Dora Chadwick (28 October 1859 – 7 December 1943)

Dora was the only daughter of Rev. Edward and Sarah Chadwick and was baptised by her father on 4 December 1859 in Thornhill Lees.  She was said to be very close to her youngest brother Hector and he credited her with ‘bringing him up’.  After her mother’s death Dora remained living at 3 Gresham Place until she died aged 84 years.

Hector Munro Chadwick  had an illustrious academic career which can be read about here. He died at the Evelyn Nursing Home in January 1947.

Rev. James Murray Chadwick retired to live in Cambridge in 1925 and died at 2 Blinco Grove in February 1938.
