Ellen Louise in the middle, unless I'm mistaken, was my great grandmother, and Mary to the left and Richard Besley, to the right were obviously her parents. She subsequently married my great grandfather, whose name I'm not able to make out from my dad's notes: Clearnt Mar(c?)hant, or something like that. An adjacent note seems to say "Engineer of Chippenham". Anyone know more about this? They had two children, Mary Alberta Mar(c?)hant 1913 - and Richard Besley (don't have any dates for him though. Will need to check when Mary Alberta died, it was around 1986, I believe.
