Arthur William Thomas Gates (1900 – 13 October 1929)

Arthur was the eldest child of William and Florence Gates.  He died of TB at Papworth Hospital aged 29 years old.

Florence Mary Gates (née Boot) (1878 – 21 January 1933)

Florence was the daughter of Thomas and Frances (née Charles). Her father was a college servant and she grew up at 60 Coronation Street (1881) and 10 Argyle Street (1891). She married William Charles Gates (1875-1952) in 1899 and they had four children: Arthur William Thomas, Dorothy Katherine (1903-1966), Leslie Charles (1906-1972) and one more child who died as an infant. William was a tailor and the family lived at 21 Cavendish Road (1901), 19 Coronation Street (1911) and 5 Union Road.   Florence died at home and her funeral took place on 25 January 1933.

William Gates moved to live at 107 Milton Road with his daughter Dorothy and son in law Daniel Dent. He died at Milton Road on 25 September 1952, and might be buried in the same grave as his wife and son – the parish burial records only record to 1950.
