I'm sorry that you did not get a reply to your original query. Any reply would have been on the website -but I can't find your query on our web site.  However, there is a  Frederick R BAKER living in Shirehampton on the 1939 Register - his date of birth is given as 19 Jan 1917 which could well be the same man.  His wife's name is Mary.  As that information is available it looks as if he has died.

There is a death registered in Bristol in 1981 of a Frederick Robert BAKER was born 19 Feb 1917.  Although this date is not correct errors of that nature are not uncommon on death certificates.  It would be worth checking it out. Death registered 4th qrt 1981 Bristol 22 1135.

He was born in Bristol on 17 Jan 1917, and he was Frederick R Baker. I do not yet know what the R stood for!

Do you know anyone in the picture?

Thanks, Bill. We have exchanged several emails now. Attached to one is a document I have prepared summarising the residents of Langford Road at the time of the 1939 Register. My grandfather and his family lived at 77 and one of his brothers and his family lived at 79. Both worked at the Potteries, as did another brother. If any other member would like a copy I am happy to share it.

What a marvellous find!  Glentworth Hall Private Hotel was on Knightstone Road in Weston-super-Mare.  It overlooked what is now the Marine Lake but was sadly demolished and replaced by flats.  You should be able to see it here on an old map of Glentworth Bay  The Causeway at the bottom of the map leads to Knightstone Island.  Would love to hear more about your ancestor's activities in this area.
