George Thomas Goulding (1869 -11 February 1925)

George was born in Walthamstow, but little is known of his early life.  In 1891 he was living with his brother William and sister Sarah at Hertford Street and was working as a milkman. He married Eletha Pearson in 1893 and they had at least four children: Alfred George (1897-1886), Thomas John Henry (1899-1971), Frederick Charles (1903-) and Cecilia Muriel (1910-1990). George was a milkman/shopkeeper and ran a business from 8 City Road. He died at home aged 56 years old.

Eletha Goulding (née Pearson) (1873 – 5 May 1926)

Eletha was born in Brinkley, fifteen miles east of Cambridge and was the son of Charles and Maria. Charles  Pearson was a groom and Eletha grew up in Brinkley, although by 1891 she was working as a general servant in Gorton, Manchester for the Riley family. She died the year after her husband at 8 City Road.
