Harry Baker, singer from Maidstone, Kent.
His wife, Frances Baker, was also a singer.
- "Mr. Baker of Maidstone, who is in his seventies, has worked all his life as an engineer at Thomas Tillings'. He is a little uncertain in his singing, and I had to ask him to repeat the tune of "Death and the Lady" a number of times before I was certain of having it down correctly."
Mr. Baker sang only four verses, but his version, with expanded words, was included in the Penguin Book of English Folk Songs.
