Inscription

Jane Pugh (1841 – 29  March 1916)

Jane was the eldest daughter of William (1816-1899) and Mary Ann (née Cooper) (1821-1853). William was a french polisher who  later worked as a photographer.  Jane and her three siblings grew up at 4 Causeway Court (1851) and then 21 James Street (at least 1861 onwards).  Her mother died when she was twelve years old and her two brothers Benjamin and Alfred both died in 1866, so Jane and her sister Ann lived with their father at James Street until his death. The sisters then continued to live at the house, and on census records their occupations were noted as being ‘private means’. Jane died at home aged 75 years old.

From parish burial records it is known that Ann Pugh was also buried in the Holy Trinity area of Mill Road Cemetery and is thought to have been buried with her sister.

Ann Pugh (1851 – December 1930)

Ann died at James Street and was buried on 16 December 1930.  She was 79 years old.
