Wednesday's Children



In Memory of
Our
Dear Brothers 
and Sisters
Reginald Wren
1923 ~ 1924
Mabel Wren
1923 ~ 1930
Victor Wren
1926 ~ 1932
Doris Wren
1920 ~ 1923
Who is Interred Nearby

At the Old Mortlake Burial Ground this marble book tells a very sad tale indeed when you do the maths and add it all up.
Doris died at around the age of three and in that same year, Reginald and Mabel were born ~ as there are no exact dates, there is a possibility that they may have been twins. 
The following year Reginald dies and two years after that, Victor is born and Mabel is now about three years old. Four years later Mabel dies around the age of seven, then two years after Mabel's death, Victor dies aged about six.

As the memorial is dedicated to them by their other siblings, it's good to know that some of the Wren children made it into adulthood.
