red mail Littlewood
I have a group photograph of my great-aunt Lilian Littlewood's marriage to Ben Johnson on September 19 1903 at Burley parish church, Leeds. My grandmother Sarah Ann Brown is on the back row and among a few people identified are: Louisa Littlewood (formerly Pratt), John William Littlewood and his wife Blanche, Florrie Shaw and her son Willie, David Walker and Jane Elizabeth Mylen. Is anyone who has a copy of this picture able to identify anyone else (i.e. Walker Littlewood, John Brown who I would have expected to be in the group)?
