The Enumerator had crossed through the 2 younger children's ages when checking off his figures!
One of the traction engines owned by Emmanuel was built by Fowell's of St Ives, Hunts. From their register: "No 45 was built for Larman Register, TE7HP; delivered Sep 1888 - owned later by E. Palmer, Wisbech."
Emma died in April, 1939, and Emmanuel in August 1939 - they are buried together in Mt Pleasant Cemetery, Wisbech. But, unfortunately, the dates have been transposed on the grave inscription - it reads: "In loving memory of Emma Mary Palmer died Aug 9th 1939 aged 86 years Also of Emmanuel Palmer died April 24 1939 aged 86 years - Reunited" BUT, according to the records of Mt Pleasant Cemetery, it was Emmanuel who was buried 12 August 1939.
