Peck grave
Peck inscription


This set of kerbstones with small leaning stone, located in the parish of Mary the Less, lie roughly 11 rows to the east and 1 row to the north along the path that runs from the centre circle towards the east path. The metal letters of the inscription are mostly intact but all the kerbs have fallen. And are mostly hidden under grass & bramble. There is a tall pillar behind the grave to the west which should help locate it.


In Loving Memory of  MABEL PECK  died December 22 1940  aged 54 years

Mabel Peck (22 September 1886 – 22 December 1940)

Mabel was the daughter of labourer/carter Chamberlain William Peck (1852 – 1924) and Jane (née Wayman) (1858-1942).  She grew up at 9 Doric Street (1891) and worked as a domestic servant throughout her life. In 1901 she was working at 8 Fair Street for provisions merchant Alfred Hill and his family, before moving to Stoke Newington to work for vet Alexander Foune and his wife Maud (1911).  By 1939 she had returned to Cambridge and was working for spinster Beatrice Cooper at 6 Gresham Road, which is where she died.
