Dennis David Kirbyshire (1 March 1912 – 24 February 1940)

Dennis was born David Dennis, but appears to have switched his forenames around as he grew up.  He was born in Plymouth in Devon, but by the age of 23 was living at 40 James Street in Cambridge, with Frederick and Mary Staden.  In the census of 1939 he was boarding at 127 Sturton Street with the Hopkins family.  His occupation was noted as a dental mechanic seeking work, and also that he was a special constable.  He died in February 1940 just before his 28th birthday.
