William (Arthur) Henry Warren (1845 – 11 March 1868)

William was always known as Arthur Henry Warren, so the engraving is at odds with records in his lifetime.  Indeed he was baptised Arthur Henry Warren at St. Clements Church on 21 December 1845. Arthur was the son of grocer William Warren and his wife Elizabeth. William and Elizabeth had at least eight children, of which Arthur was the fifth child, and fourth son.  He grew up at 14 Trumpington Street, where his father ran a shop.  Later William Warren (snr) was an alderman of Cambridge.   He died at home aged 22 years old and was buried at Mill Road Cemetery on 16 March.

George Warren (3 August 1840 – 27 August 1881)

George was the second child of William and Elizabeth Warren.  He was baptised at St Clements Church on 5 November 1840. He grew up at 14 Trumpington Street, and later went to live with his widowed mother at Merton Cottage (1871).  He became a grocer like his father and ran a business with Mr. David Pratt, and also his younger brother Edward George Warren. The business traded at 14 Magdalen Street and was known as ‘Warren & Pratt’. In the census of 1881 George was recorded living at 51 Bridge Street, and his occupation was noted as senior partner of grocery firm employing 17 men and 5 boys. The business was transferred into the name of David Pratt on 1 August 1881.  He died at Bridge Street, aged 41 years old and was buried on 31 August at Mill Road Cemetery.
