Anna Louisa Wardale (13 August 1860 –  15 March 1901)

Anna Louisa was the daughter of John and Susannah Wardale.  She was born in Orchestron, Wiltshire where her father was the vicar. She was baptised there on 14th October 1860.  John and Susannah had at least eight children, and so Anna Louisa grew up with many siblings.  In 1871 aged 11 years old she was at a boarding school in Devizes.

Her father later became the vicar of Datchworth in Hertfordshire.  Her mother Susannah died in January 1892, and Anna continued to live with her father, and moved with him to 2 Benet Place in Cambridge.  She died there in 1901 aged 40 years old.

Her mother was buried in at Overton Church, as was her father who died in 1903.  It is not known why Anna Louisa was buried in Cambridge.
