Frederick Alfred Kinsey (1866 – 30 April 1922)

Frederick was born in Stapleford and was the youngest child of Thomas and Rebecca (née Jordan). Thomas Kinsey (1822-1867) was a gardener who died when Frederick was a young child. Aged 16 he was living with his widowed mother in Great Shelford and working as a labourer in the local flour mill. Frederick married Lucy Williams in Cambridge in 1893 and they had six children: Dorothy (1897-1922), Hilda Mary (1899-1990), Stanley Frederick (1900-1974), Claud Alfred (1902-1976), Queenie Irene (1902-2002) and Leonard Cyril (1905-1977). In 1901 the family were living at 75 Cavendish Road and Frederick was working as a miller. By 1911 he was working as a fitter at the cement works, but still living at Cavendish Road.  He died at 95 Cavendish Road and his funeral took place on 4 May 1922.

Dorothy Kinsey (1897- 4 May  1922)

Dorothy was the eldest child of Frederick and Lucy. She died at the Fulbourn Asylum  on the day of her father’s funeral and was buried on 6 May.
