Emily Mary Ann Amps  (née Ludman) (1884 – 1 July 1927)

Emily was the daughter of Charles and Esther (née Sampson) Ludman. Charles was a labourer who died in 1887 aged 38, and Emily’s mother Esther then married bricklayer Alfred Jacobs in 1892.  Emily was raised at 4 St. Matthew’s Court and aged 16 was working as a domestic servant. She married Thomas William Amps (1883-1960) in 1903 and the couple had at least two sons: Thomas Charles (1906-1984) and Reginald (1909-1984). Thomas was a gas fitters labourer and the family lived at 4 St. Matthew’s Street. Emily died at home aged 43 years old and was buried on 5 July.

Thomas married widow Alice Violet Bragg (née Palmer) (1882-1976) in 1928 and died in Cambridge aged 76 years old.
