Inscription

Susan Dunget  (née Pull) (1842 – 5 May 1909)

Born in East Harling, Norfolk, Susan was the daughter of carpenter George and Mary (née Bladen).  Aged 19 she was working as a servant at 38 Hills Road for widow Mary Flitton and her daughter Elizabeth and married Mark Dunget on 23 September 1867 at Trinity Church, Marylebone. Mark was a gardener when they married,  but later worked as a grocer’s warehouseman (1881 onwards).  They settled to live at 2 Eligius Street (1881) and 3 Clarendon Road (at least 1891 onwards).  The couple had five children: Edward William (1868-1931), Sgt. Ernest Mark (1869-1918), Sidney James (1873-1947), Alice Edith (1875-1961) and Florence Maud (1877-1949). Susan died at Clarendon Street aged 67 years old.

Mark Dunget (1846 – 5 May 1928)

Mark was born in Swanley, Kent and was the son of agricultural labourer James and Mary Ann.  Mark was involved with the Nelson Street Friends’ Adult Sunday School and in October 1894 spoke with two other men ‘of the benefits they had received in the school’.  More information about the Nelson Street Adult Sunday School can be read here. Mark continued to live at Clarendon Road with daughter Alice (1911) after Susan’s death and died at Mill Road Infirmary.
