132 Mill Road, (28 Railway Cottages)

History of 132 Mill Road Road (28 Railway Cottages)

In the 1881 census the railway Cottages are numbered from the end closest to the railway lines nos. 29 – 25. In 1913 there are railways workers living in 134 – 122, again starting at the railway bridge.

So it seems likely that 28 Railway Cottages would have been no. 132 or thereabout in the later numbering scheme.

1881:

William Butler, 62, general labourer, b Trumpington

Elizabeth, 61, laundress, b Foxton

Emma, 22, laundress, b Cambridge

Alice Mary, 20, laundress, b Cambridge
