Walter was an 'electro plater'.

In 1891 Walter had moved to 67 Dunlace Road, Hackney, where he was married to "J Newman" and has three younger children plus M J, born 1880, and is still working as an electro plate worker. Presumably Louisa died between 1881 and 1891.

Beck family

  • Sophia Beck

(1861)

Not sure why she's living alone, image says "Nurses daughter" which is crossed out, then "minding house", and has her listed as someone's "daughter" but also "unmarried" so she's unlikely to be the daughter of the previous entrants surnamed Wallace. Perhaps the head of the household was away on census night.
