Who died June 10 1907

Also of JAMES HERBERT WRIGHT died Jun 3 1907 3 days

Relationship: Mother and baby

Kate died a week after her son James. Permission was granted by the Home Office for baby James’ body to be exhumed and buried with his mother.

Kate May Wright (née Browning) (1879 – 10 June 1907) 

Kate was born in Newmarket, the daughter of James and Sarah. She grew up at Granby Street, Newmarket where her father worked as a turf commission agent (someone who placed bets on behalf of owners or trainers with bookmakers, and who also may have placed bets for members of the general public). She married Albert Harry Wright (1876-1965)  in 1902 in Newmarket and they lived at 334 Mill Road. Albert worked as a clerk for Great Eastern Railway. Kate died at home a week after giving birth to their son James – it is thought as a result of complication in childbirth.

James Herbert Wright (31 May 1907 – 3 June 1907)

James was buried in a different section of the parish two days after his death.

Albert Wright married for a second time in 1910 to Alice Clara Coulson (1884-1967) and they had two children.
