Inscription

VERA LILIAN FORDHAM died Aug 22 1920 aged 7

Vera Lilian Fordham (1913 – 1920)

Vera as a baby

Vera was the daughter of Harry and Sarah Elizabeth Fordham. She was sick for a long time and was placed in a bed by the window of their home at 25 Thoday Street, Cambridge. Possibly because of Vera’s early death her younger sister was not allowed out to play like the other children in the neighbourhood but remembers watching them using a swing in her back garden. Vera’s Uncle William, died when the Titanic sank in 1912.
