Family Photos 1931 - 1940
Dorothy Mortlock and Les Dolphin 25 April 1932 at St Chad's church, Burton on Trent. Dorothy was my mothers cousin. My mother is the small bridesmaid. The pageboy was another cousin Gordon Fry and one of the bridesmaids was Gladys Mortlock the brides sister although I'm not sure which one she is.

21st May 1934

The wedding of Arthur Frederick Lacey Crisp and Sarah Grainger in Nottingham.

Arthur was the baby that my great aunt Beatice Lacey Crisp had in secret in Portsmouth in 1905, (though we suspect her sister Florence who lived in Portsmouth knew about him). Arthur was killed on his ship in 1941. His son got in touch recently and we were able to meet.

This is my grandfather, Walter Henry Clark, on the prom some time in the early '30s, in his pj's, dressingown and slippers!


This is the same year and place. My mum at the front, then my grandmother, Winifred May Harriet Clark, nee Maynard and trailing behind, my aunt, Betty Pauline Clark:


Same holiday and it was warm enough to go in the sea (my mum, left, aunt, middle, gran, right)!


If anyone thinks any or all these photos were actually taken at Eastbourne rather than on the Isle of Wight I would be very interested to know. If anyone can confirm they are Vetnor that would be good too! lol

My maternal grandmother Lily Spence.

Probably 1931 somewhere in the Leeds area. Front row left to right: Uncle Jim Smith and Aunt Esther (nee Crampton), my grandparents Walter Berry and Lily (nee Spence). Aunt Esther was Lily's mother's sister.
On the back row second from left is Lily's sister Ethel Spence. I'm pretty sure the other three are some of Lily's half-siblings, the Wilsons. This seems to be a reunion of the siblings and half-siblings who grew up together in the Spence household in the 1870s-1880s.

Ann Birch 1862-1935
Ann Birch 1862-1935. Born Solihull, Warwickshire moved to Burton c 1881

She was married 3 times, firstly to James Barker, then to Thomas Green then to my great grandfather Thomas Henry Yates.

Ann is on the right with her sister Emma and brother in law Henry Edwards (who I think looks like Albert Steptoe. :d

This one was taken about 1931. The baby is my father.
