Gertrude Mary Ann Fromant (née Pratt) (1873 – 19 April 1935)

Gertrude was the daughter of Frederick and Esther and grew up at 23 John Street.  Her father was a painter who died in 1886 when she was a teenager.  Gertrude married Francis Herbert Fromant in 1894 and the couple had three children: Francis Leslie (1894-), Ethel Lilian (1899-1977) and Ernest Victor (1905-1964).  Francis worked for the post office as a clerk and was later a ‘controller’ and the family appears to have moved with his job.  In 1901 they were living at 65 Hertford Street, but son Ernest was born in Walthamstow in February 1905.   Francis died in Whipps Cross Hospital in March 1933, and was buried in Waltham Forest. It is thought that Gertrude then returned to live in Cambridge. She died at 24 Sussex Street aged 62 years old.
