Susan was born in 1874 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.  She was the eldest of five children born to John William Wiles Manning (1853-1920) and Mary Ann Manning (née Wisbeach).  In 1881 the family lived at 34 Northampton Street, Cambridge.  By 1891 the family lived at 53 Norwich Street, Cambridge.   By 1901 Susan was still living at home but she was working as a dressmaker.  On 26 October 1902 at St Paul’s, Cambridge Susan married Bob Hutchinson (1875-1943).  Susan died on 17 October 1956 at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.

Susan’s younger brother, John William Manning (1876-1924) and his wife, Charlotte Lucy Manning (née Porter) (1877-1959), were also buried in this cemetery.

Robert (Bob) Hutchinson (1875-1943)

Robert was born in 1875 in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire.  He was baptised on 22 August 1875 at the Primitive Methodist Chapel, Cambridge.  He was known as Bob.  He was one of at least six sons born to Joseph Hutchinson (1840-1911) and Mary Ann Hutchinson (née Rollings) (1843-1910).  In 1871 the family lived in Fosters Lane, Whittlesey.   By 1881 the family had moved to 4a Union Road, Cambridge and Bob was working as a gardener like his father.  On 26 October 1902 at St Paul’s, Cambridge Bob married Susan Jane Manning (1874-1956).  By 1911 the couple were living at 84 Norwich Street, Cambridge.  Bob enlisted when war broke out as Private 413557, Army Service Corps (Mechanical Transport).  According to his Army records he was 5ft 6 ½ inches tall and he listed his occupation as ‘waiter’.  Bob died on 4 February 1942 in Cambridge.

Bob’s maternal grandmother, Mary Ann Rollings (née Green) (c.1815-1899), his mother, Mary Ann Hutchinson (nee Rollings) (1843-1910), and his brother, John Hutchinson (1873-1949), are also buried in a family grave in this cemetery.

Bob’s brother, George Hutchinson (1868-1942), was buried in Newmarket Cemetery.  However, he was commemorated on the grave of his wife, Sarah Rebecca Hutchinson (née Gray) (1868-1931), who was buried in this cemetery.  Their son, Sidney George Hutchinson (1899-1918), who was killed in action in Belgium during the Great War is also commemorated on Sarah’s grave.
