Hi Brian,

I have no photo's of my nan and grandad's family but my nan was Gertrude Ethel Baker born in 1915 at 1 Back of 15 Bartholomew Row.
Her Father's name was George John Baker and mother was Ethel Elizabeth Clayton don't know if they are related to your family.
Maybe you can shed some light on the family? My nan married Frank Boulton who was born in 1910 in Lingard Street.
Thanks for your time
