Catherine Pack (née Saunderson) (1864 – 26 March 1909)

Catherine was born in Cambridge the daughter of George and Sarah Saunderson. George was a groom and in 1871 she was brought up at 2 Old Red Lion Yard, Bridge Street. She became an upholsteress.

Nineteen year old Catherine married Albert Charles Attwood on November  19th 1882. Albert was a porter.  He died in 1892 when they were living in Warren Yard off Bridge Street. He was 31 and is also buried in this parish as are Catherine’s brother John and his wife Martha. We have not found a monument for them.

Catherine went on to  marry Arthur Pack (1870 – 1924) on March 26th 1894. Arthur was a coachman, and in 1891 was employed by and was living at the Red Lion Hotel in Petty Cury. In 1901 the couple were living at 76 Hertford Street, and Arthur was continuing to work as a domestic coachman.  They then moved to Little St Mary’s Lane where Catherine died in March 1909 aged 44 years old.
