Clara Flood (16 July 1888 – 2 July 1951)
Clara was the daughter of George and Susan Flood. Her father was a general labourer and Clara grew up at 23 Bradmore Street (1891) and 12 St. Matthew’s Court (1901). In 1911 she was living at Gwydir Street and working as an assistant to newsagent Amelia Webb. She appears to have taken over the running of the business and in 1939 was described as a newsagent and shop keeper. In 1951 she was still living at 6 Gwydir Street, and died aged 61 years old (NB her age at death was recorded as 62 years on official documentation and on the grave monument).
Susan Flood (née Amps) (1851- October 1916)
Little is known of Susan’s early life – most census records show that she was born in Cambridge, but the 1911 census recorded her birthplace as Huntingdonshire. She was sometimes named Susan and sometimes Susannah. She married George Flood in 1885 and they had seven children: Edward (1876-1945) (born before she and George married), Lily (1885-1968), Clara, George William (1889-1955), Daisy (1891-1965) and two further children who died as infants. After she was widowed Susan worked as a charwoman and lived at 12 St. Matthew’s Court (1901) and then 9 Vicarage Terrace (1911). She died aged 65 years old.
George Flood (c.1839 – March 1896)
George was born in Ireland and died in Cambridge aged 56 years old.
