64-year-old James Baker and his family still lived at 62 Young Street. James was still a builder’s scaffolder.

James Baker died in 1940 aged 64. His wife Martha died in 1957 aged 83. It is likely that she still lived at 62 Young Street when she died (she’d lived there in 1945). They were both buried in Mill Road Cemetery.
