Arthur John Juler (1880 – 21 April 1930)
Arthur was the son of Charles and Sarah (née Brown) Juler. His father was a grocer and baker, and Arthur grew up on Norfolk Street. Charles Juler died when Arthur was 14 years old, and he then continued to live at 65 Norfolk Street with his widowed mother and siblings. By the age of 21 (1901) Arthur was working as a piano tuner. He married Edith Wing in 1905 and the couple lived at 15 Mill Road (1911) and then at 5 Warkworth Street (c.1916-1925). He died at 50 St. Barnabas Road aged 50 years old.
Arthur was undoubtedly a large influence on the music community in the town. He worked as a piano and organ tuner, but was also a music teacher and organist. The newspapers of the time regularly printed the results of his students sitting music exams. He took part in numerous concerts: as an organiser, accompanied singers and played solos. Concerts such as the Young Men’s Christian Association Athletic Club smoking concert in the Alexandra Hall (1899), The Garrick Concert Party concert at Fulbourn Asylum (1901) and Cambridge Rowing Association smoking concert (1903). He organised many concerts including the November 1914 ‘Popular Concert’ – the review of the concert reported ‘Mr A.J. Juler who deserves the highest praise for the really enjoyable entertainment he gave. He was well supported by the artistes, who all did their best and the whole concert had a high police unusual in amateur entertainments’.
Arthur was also a church organist, and in 1909 was appointed organist of St. Benedict’s Church. At his appointment the Cambridge Independent Press noted ‘after a competitive trial they elected Mr. A.J. Juler who came to them from St. Philip’s. From what they had seen and heard of Mr Juler they thought he would prove a very genial and a very able officer’.
Ethel Minnie Juler (née Wing) (26 May 1879 – 30 January 1964)
Ethel was the daughter of James and Elizabeth Wing. She grew up on Victoria Road (1881) and then at Rhadegund Terrace (1891), her father worked as a clerk in a college kitchen. Aged 21 (1901) Ethel was living with her widowed mother and siblings at 6 & 7 St. Edwards Passage, where her mother ran a lodging house. Ethel was working as a draper’s assistant. She married aged c.26 years old.
After being widowed she moved to live at 10 Portugal Street (1939) where she ran a lodging house. She died aged 84 years old at 18 Victoria House, Victoria Road.
