Inscription

Edmund Hadingham (26 August 1837 – 25 March 1910)

Edmund was the son of Daniel (1793-1870) and Esther (née Soward) (1801-1853). Daniel was  a draper and ran a shop at Market Hill (1840) where he sold ‘linen drapery, haberdashery, hosiery, lace etc’. By 1851 he had retired and the family lived at Malcolm Street, and he was noted as being an assistant overseer/rate collector for the Parish of St. Andrew the Great. In 1855 Daniel Hadingham was accused of having swindled money. For the Church he had collected £115, paid £35 and therefore was in default of £70. Likewise the Highway Rate was also in arrears. The Church committee voted to prosecute him, but it is not known what fine/punishment he received.

Edmund Hadingham married Frances Maltby in 1860 and worked as a tailor. They had four children, all of whom died as infants: Martha Esther (1862-1863) William Richard (1864-1865), Albert Edmund (1866-1868) and one more child as yet unidentified. The couple lived at 3 Adam and Eve Row (1861), Dover Street, 19 Mill Street (1871), 30 Prospect Row (at least 1881 onwards). Edmund died at home and his funeral was held on 31 March.

Frances Hadingham (née Maltby) (1836 – 20 January 1923)

Frances was the daughter of Samuel (1803-1876) and Martha (née Wilderspin) (1813-1848), sister of Arthur. Her father was a tailor and robe maker and she grew up at 20 Broad Street. After she was widowed she continued to live at Prospect Row until at least 1920 and died aged 86 years old.

Three of Edmund and Frances’ infant children were also buried within the St Andrew the Less area of Mill Road Cemetery – it is not known whether they are buried in the same grave as their parents.

Martha Esther Hadingham (1862 – July 1863)

Martha died at Dover Street aged 7 months old and was buried on 6 July 1863.

William Richard Hadingham (1864- 22 February 1865)

William died at Dover Streeet aged 4 months old and was buried on 24 February 1865.

Albert Edmund Hadingham (1866 – February 1868)

Albert died at Dover Street aged 2 years old and was buried on 29 February 1868.
