Alice Elizabeth Norman (née Shead) (24 October 1872 – 2 February 1941)

Alice was born in the village of Bures, on the Essex/Sussex border and baptised there on 5 January 1873. She was the only child of Thomas George Shead (1838-1923) and Eliza (1842-1927).  By 1881 she was living with her parents in Edmonton, where Thomas worked as a gasworks labourer.  In 1891 she was working as a dressmaker and married Arthur John Arnold Norman (1871-1949) on 25 October 1893 at St. James’ Church, Enfield.

Arthur was a watchmaker, who had been born in Willingham and although the couple were living in Tring, Hertfordshire in 1901, they had moved to Cambridge by at least 1910 when their only son John Eric (1910-1994) was born.  The couple lived at Tenison Road, and by 1939 Arthur had retired and Alice was described as an invalid.

Arthur Norman moved to live in Twickenham and died there in July 1949.
