Hi Peter,

I can't remember where I found this, perhaps FreeReg, but it would appear to be a burial record for Fanny Tucker-Clapp:




Chapel Allerton


Parish Church Tr




24 Aug 1814
















Stone Allerton

I do see it Kate - my only concern is that  I think is that Gilbert EH looks a lot older than these two than the 2 and 4 years older than he should be! But it does look so much like him - it must be him surely!

On another tack a JJ Edwards that was treasurer in 1923 could be John James Edwards who was a farmer in Kewstoke. He was married to Ethel May OSMOND - is she one of yours? 

This is the only other photo I have which we presume is Harry NICHOLS. He was only 5 ft 4 according to his army records we think that it is him. You can see my problem though!
