Kathleen Rishbeth (Haddon)
Kathleen Rishbeth lived here with her daughter Margaret from 1944. In 1981 Percy Gray of no.26 related this story about the mulberry tree in no.22. “During the war the house was occupied by Mrs Kathleen Rishbeth. At the time of the Normandy landings a special artificial harbour called a ‘mulberry harbour’ was constructed at Avranches to help the landing operations. Mrs Rishbeth planted a mulberry tree at the time to commemorate the landings.”
In this interview Margaret Rishbeth of Hinton Avenue (2016) recalls the period she lived with her mother in Sedley Taylor Road including the time she was a student at Homerton College.
At the time of the 1947 Cambridge floods Margaret took these pictures around the centre of the city:
William Scott-Moncrief, Lieutenant-colonel
Jack Carrick Trevor, university lecturer in anthropology
Peter and Wendy George
Mike and Soraya Smith
It was in 2002 that the name Mulberry House was used for the first time
