[IN] MEMORY OF
HYMAN
SON OF RUBEN SOMERS
[BORN] DECEMBER 25 1877
[DIED] … 9 1893


Hyman Somers was the oldest son of Reuben and Annie (Crowsey) Somers. Reuben was a Russian subject and in 1873 came to this country from Poland with capital of £20 and obtained employment as a  tailor in London.  His wife Annie (Crowsey) was also born in Poland and their first three children, including Hyman,  were all born in Shoreditch, London.  

They moved to Newport where three more children were born before moving to Bath by 1885 when the birth of another daughter was registered in July followed by another daughter in 1889. 

Reuben is listed in the 1889 Bath Directory as a master tailor living at 15 Kingston Road.  In the early 1890s he moved his workshop to 7 Railway Place and Hyman was his apprentice. It was there in 1893 that Hyman died aged 15 of Tuberculosis.  His eldest sister Mary was present at his death.
