Group Activity – Wedding Photo
This photo was taken after the marriage of Laura and Charlie (my mum and dad) and was almost certainly in the back garden of 17, Rodbourne Road, which was the address that Laura and her family were living at the time, as shown on their Marriage Certificate.
Charles Alexander was Laura’s father and the boy on Mum’s left is definitely her brother Dennis, the lad in front of him is her brother Maurice and the little girl I believe is her sister Rosie. One of the other two lads I believe must be another of her brothers ,Mervyn. Who the remaining boy is I haven’t got a clue.
Mum had another older sister, Edna, who was on holiday with her husband in Scotland at the time of the wedding, and two stepsisters from her father’s previous marriage, Tora and Georgina. Making a total family of 8 children.
I don’t think the little girl is Rosie as she was born in 1922..nice to see photos of my grandfather and uncles and aunt.fond childhood memories of time spent visiting relatives in Swindon.
Thanks for that info Di. she certainly looks a lot younger than 15 doesn’t she?
It now begs the question who is she?
We always leave it too late to ask these questions don’t we
Glad to have brought back memories for you. Sheila and I send our love
I do wonder if they were Toras two children?she had a boy called Bernard and a girl, was tora the eldest of the first family?I believe there were also 2 children who died in childhood in 1912 (Eva and Reginald )siblings to tora and Ina. but I can’t remember who told me. Ina or Tom
Tora ended up living in Devon but wether she was at your mum and dad’s wedding is anyone’s guess.maybe they were neighbours children, but it does look like a family photo.Did your dad have siblings?
Makes me want to take up family history and find out!!
Love to you both, maybe we ought to meet up before it is too late!!
Do you think it is Freda?
