Enid Osborn (c.July 1916 – 4 February 1920)
Enid was the daughter of Edward Denham Osborn (1871-1945) and his wife Eleanor Flora McDonald Osborn (née McCausland) (1874-1962). She was born in Alton in Hampshire in the summer of 1916. Edward Osborn was a Customs and Excise Officer and the family moved extensively due to his role. Edward was originally from the Isle of Wight and had married Eleanor who was from Shropshire. They had at least two other daughters: Doreen Mary (1903-1996) and Beatrice Gwendolen McCausland (1912-2001).
In 1911, prior to Enid’s birth the family had been living in Barrow-in-Furness in Lancashire. By 1939 they were living in Somerset, and later moved to settle in the Portsea/Hampshire area. It is assumed that the family lived briefly in Cambridge as part of Edward’s job. Enid died in February 1920.
