William was the son of Edward and Harriet Wallman. He was born in Swavesey.
He was living in Hobart Road when he died at the age of 19. His parents may have been living in the Parish of St Clement’s in 1889 which is probably why they are all buried in this section of Mill Road Cemetery.

In both the 1851 and 1861 census he was with his grandfather living in Wallman’s Lane. Edward became a journeyman carpenter which meant he was self employed and may have travelled to find work
