Sylvia Edna Tomblin – died 1905, aged 19 months

Sylvia Edna Tomblin was born around the end of December 1903, the youngest of the fourteen children of William Richard Tomblin and his wife Rosetta, nee Rodwell.  William and Rosetta had married in 1884 in Winslow, Buckinghamshire, where Rosetta was born.  William came from Great Bowden in Leicester and worked as a Railway Clerk.  Their large family consisted of Rose (born 1885), Florence (1886), Grace (1887), Maggie (1889), William (1890), Frank (1891), Frances (1892), Dorothy (1893), Gertrude (1894), Elsie (1895), Dora (1897, May (1899), Frederic (1901) and Sylvia (1903).  The first eight children were all born in Watford and the younger ones in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead.

At the time of the 1901 Census,  taken  two years before Sylvia was born, the family were living at 55 Charles Street, Berkhamsted, though young Dorothy had died in 1896, aged 3 years.  We can see that little Sylvia was born into a large and busy household, with many older siblings to help look after her and play with her. Sadly though she fell ill in June 1905 with acute Bronchitis.  This led to a high temperature and convulsions, which caused  her death within three days.

She was laid to rest in Rectory Lane Cemetery and was joined some years later by another little girl, her sister Elsie’s daughter Peggy May Jones, who passed away in 1920 aged just seven weeks.  The two little girls now rest together.
