The sad story of George and Emma Cummins, Quorn 1898

The information for this story was provided by Andrew Cummins from Suffolk. His great grandparents were George and Emma Cummins who lived in Quorn in the 1890s and sadly died within three days of each other in 1898, leaving behind eleven children.

It is not only interesting because it is about Quorn, but it also provides an insight into how quickly fortunes could change and how hard life could be in Victorian times.

This article appeared in the Quorndon Magazine in Autumn 2011.

Note: A short postscript to this story appears as Artefact 2233
