Just a quick update for you.
Last Friday I told you all about, Susan Mary Kirby nee Lagden but I was waiting on four certificates, for two of Susan’s and Alfred’s angel baby’s, Alice Maud Olive Kirby and Richard Arthur Kirby. Their birth and death certificates finally arrived in my inbox this morning. As promised here are the details I promised you.
They show that –
Alice Maud Olive Kirby, was born on the, 26th May 1886, at 2 Bovay Street, Highbury, Islington, Middlesex, England.
Her Father Alfred’s, occupation at the time of Alice’s birth was a, Laundry Carman.

Alice Maud Olive Kirby, died on the 8th November 1886, at 5 months old, at home, 2 Bovay Street, Highbury, Islington, Middlesex, England.
She died from Meningitis.
Alfred’s occupation was an, Under Carman at a steam laundry.
Susan Mary Kirby nee Lagden, registered her death on the, 10th November 1886.
Richard Arthur Kirby, was born on the, 13th October 1887, at 2 Bovay Street, Highbury, Islington, Middlesex, England.
His Father Alfred’s, occupation at the time of her birth was a Carman.
Alfred registered her birth on the 15th December 1887 .
Richard Arthur Kirby, died on the 15th November 1888.
He died from Bronchitis, 9 days, with Convulsions. Richard died at his home, 2 Bovay Street, Highbury, Islington, Middlesex, England.
Richards Father, Alfred was still working as a Carman.
Alfred, registered Richards death on 16th November 1888.
Even though it’s really interesting to see what my ancestors died from, especially as we now know that 4 generations from this maternal line, have had Meningitis, two that have ended in death. The death certificates always make me feel a little sad, especially when it’s children. To lose a child has to be every parents worst nightmare.
I consider us all to be very lucky that we don’t have the infant loss that our ancestors had. Thank goodness for medical science.
Rest in peace little ones
