Sidney John Carter (1885 – 6 February 1937)

Sidney was the son of  George Albert Carter and Eliza (née Whitehead) and grew up at 15 Willow Place. George (1848-1895) was a house painter and Eliza worked at Trinity College as a bedmaker. Sidney also worked as a painter and married Rose Ann Moore (1888-1960) in 1907.  They lived at 4 New Court (at least 1911-1930) and it is thought that Sidney served with the Royal Engineers in the 1st World War.  Sidney and Rose are also thought to have had at least two daughters, who were born after the war and he died at 188 Histon Road aged 51 years old.
