Alfred Page  (1892 – 23 February 1939)

Alfred was born in Ickleton and was the son of Dick and Jane Page.  He was raised at Abbey Street in the village (1901), and his father worked as a farm stockman. By 1911 the family were living at Grange Road in Ickleton and Alfred was working as a domestic gardener. It is believed he may have served in the 1st World War, before marrying Harriet Esther Wayman (1897-1967) in 1921.  The couple lived at 17 Bridge Street, and are not believed to have had any children.  Alfred died at Addenbrooke’s Hospital after ‘a long illness patiently borne’.  His funeral service was held at Holy Sepulchre Church on 25 February before internment at Mill Road Cemetery.  Harriet’s wreath was accompanied by a message which read ‘Goodnight sweetheart – someday we’ll understand from your broken-hearted wife’.

Harriet went on to run a University Lodging House from Bridge Street (1939) before marrying William James Stubbings (1891-1967) in 1942.  She died at Bridge Street in January 1967.
