Lilian Eva Rose (née Lister) (1889 – 7 April  1930)

Lilian was the second daughter of Arthur Lister (1863-1943) and Julia Avis Maud (née Tuck) (1862-1943). Arthur was a tailor and Lilian grew up at 32 Grafton Street.  In 1911 she was living at home and working as a tailoress. She married Charles Rose in 1916 and the couple lived at Grafton Street (1918 – 1920), then 30 James Street (at least 1924 onwards). Lilian died at Mill Road Infirmary aged 41 years old.

Charles Woollard Rose (1889 – 5 December 1937)

Charles was born in Cambridge but little else is known of his early life. After the death of Lilian he  married Margaret Allbone (1908-1984) in 1932 in St. Ives, Huntingdon.  The couple lived at 11 Corona Road and had at least one son: Charles A (1932-). Charles  died at home aged 47 years old and his funeral took place on 8 December 1937.

Margaret Rose married for a second time in 1943 to widower Albert Charles Ford (1913-1976). She was still living at Corona Road at the time of her death in November 1984.
