Sarah Ann Barrow (née Radwell) (1876 – 2 May 1930)

Sarah was born in the hamlet of Old Weston, to the west of Huntingdon, the  daughter of William (1833-1914) and Sarah (née Linnell)(1838-1900). William was an agricultural labourer and aged 15 Sarah was living at the School House in Old Weston, working as a servant for the village teacher Margaret Motherade. She moved to Cambridge to work as a cook at 121 Mill Road for Henry and Alice Sherlock. Henry Sherlock was the district engineer for Great Eastern Railway.

Sarah married William Barrow in 1904 and they had four children: Arthur William (1908-), Cyril Walter (1910-1980), Doris Annie (1912-1979) and Vera Constance (1916-1975). William worked for Great Eastern Railway as a signal painter and they lived at 11 Belgrave Road.  Sarah died at home aged 54 years old.

William Barrow (12 June 1874 – 22 July  1947)

William was born in Hallow, two miles north of Worcester and grew up there with his parents William and Elizabeth. His father was a labourer and his mother a gloveress (there was an extensive glove making industry in Worcester at that time). Aged 16 William was also working in the glove industry (1891) before moving to lodge at 18 Cockburn Street and started work as a signal painter (1901).

In 1939 he was living at Church Street, Chesterton with daughter Vera and was documented as being a retired signal fitter. He died at 10 Granhams Road, Great Shelford and his funeral took place on 26 July 1947.
