My God!

The lady second from the left is my Grandmother, Dorothy Hazel (Born Prescott). The lady last on the right is my Great Aunt, her sister, Edna...

That photo is on my parent's sideboard.

Wendy, I guess we are related!

The funny thing is I was thinking of scanning and then posting that exact photo in this forum only a few moments ago. Pre-cognition perhaps.

My Mum has just explained the photo. My Nan and Great Aunt are cousins of the two ladies in the photo. So I'm related to Wendy's husband...

What a small world we live in.

Hi Buckley. I have sent my sisiter in law an email to ask if she can name the girls. As far as I know they were my father in law Alfred Partridges sisters.

Buckley I have just spoken to my sister in law and she says the lady first on the left is Minnie Partridge and second from the end is Elsie Partridge. So I may have been miss informed, the other two girls may have been friends as she doesn't apear to know their names. I still find it wonderful that there is a connection. Elsie died young in her 20's and is buried in a family plot at Witton.
