In Loving Memory of my dear husband GEORGE JOSEPH PAULETT
who died Sept 23 1934

Also of MARY PAULETT who died Jan. 23. 1944. Aged 86 years.

George Joseph Paulett (1859 – 23 September 1934)

George was raised by his grandparents William and Mary Paulett.  His grandfather was a labourer and later a gardener and he grew up at  3 St. Peter’s Street (1861) and Impington Hall Lodge (1871).  George trained as a tailor and in 1881 was living with his grandfather at 2 Collin’s Passage. He married single mother Mary Player in Bishop’s Stortford in 1888 and they lived at 42 Histon Road (1891), 17 Herbert Street (1901) then 8 St. John’s Road (1911) with Mary’s son Arthur William Player (1885-1917). Arthur trained to be a tailor under George and the two appear to have worked together.

George was an active member of the Cambridge Ancient Order of Foresters, a financial friendly society and acted as Committee member and also was a local and district auditor. George died at 24 Portugal Street aged 75 years old and his funeral was held on 27 September.

Mary was born in Stansted, Essex, the daughter of William and Mary Player. Her father was a labourer and Mary had a son when she was 27 years old – Arthur William Player, who died in the 1st World War. Mary died at Chesterton Infirmary aged 86 years old.
