That's really interesting. Thank you. Look forward to hearing from you.

Agree with you re: theory under threat. There are two men with walking sticks and two old men sitting on the bench - I think that age / disability dictated the positions in the photo rather than committee status.

It seems that Gilbert E H Frost was a very dapper chap despite being a farmer. I think the photo below is from about 1930 (aged 37ish). I don't know the date of the wedding photo on Ancestry but the fashions look late 50s / early 60s - so he is probably in his late 60s.

Thank you for that - I looked Gilbert E H FROST up on Ancestry and that photo of him at the wedding looks very similar - is the chap in my photo too old though? Think my theory of the committee being the front 9 might be under threat though - there are too many old 'uns to match the names I found so far

Unknown Gilbert Edward Hurley FROST

I was originally drawn to this his fellow - my g/grandad Harry was also a cricketer - and this chap seems to have the look of a sportsman - but he seems differently dressed to the others - did you notice the shoes? Not he shoes of a GWR man - farmer? That's why I originally thought that he might be the school teacher - unless the school teacher is the stern looking man over on the left!

Every time I look at these photos though - they seem to be the same man. 

Kate, do you know when that wedding photo on Ancestry was taken?

My wife is a direct descendant of John Payne the landlord of the Carriage Inn in Monkton Coombe.

The relationships as you say are rather complicated - I will contact you directly later -  since as you say this is outside the scope of the Society's area of interest.

I agree that 4. could be Gilbert Frost (1865-1928). The man to his left looks very much like his son, Gilbert Edward Hurley Frost (1893-1973).

I admire your research to put names to the faces in this photograph, especially the matching with photos found elsewhere online.  At a quick glance I would agree with your conclusions.
