North Eastern Railway Uniforms? North Eastern Railway Uniforms?

The gentleman bottom left has been identified by another as my great uncle, a bus driver with NER. I think that the other 4 are his brothers including my grandfather - all of whom worked for NER and, later, LNER out of various north east stations. To confirm this I need some help in identifying the uniforms of the 2 men on the right. I can date this as post WW1 so about mid 1920's. ...

Identifying WW1 soldiers and uniforms Essex regiment

I have a photo given to me (attached) by other family members and was told that standing on the left of photo is my great Uncle, Alfred DAVIS (1897-1918). I Know he enlisted into Essex Regiment 1914 (Private No.10738) and was in 9th Battalion. He was KIA near Sailly sur la Lys in 1918.
I am trying to identify the other 2 men in this photo, the family have said they are unknown but ...

Who are these Canadian visitors?

This is a complete shot in the dark, but the young man in the centre of this photo visited my family for my great grandma's 80th birthday in Middleton, Manchester in 1957. I think great grandma's brother (Herbert Woodward, b 1874) may have emigrated to Canada in 1891 so it is possible this is a descendent of his. I just thought it was worth posting on the off-chance that someone might recognise these people.

Here's ...

Please could this photograph be dated


I wonder if anyone could assist with dating this photograph please.
I originally based on who relations advised were in the picture thought the picture was dated around the early 1920’s. Based on a bit more detective work I’m thinking it was more between 1905 and 1911.
The 2 eldest on the photograph the earliest died in 1927 and that’s too far away from either of the dates mentioned ...

Can anyone identify this uniform?

Hi, A DNA match on ancestry thinks this is a photo of my great-grandfather, Arthur Phillips Parsons born 1893 in Lancashire. The postcard appears to be from Aldershot barracks, and I would guess he is in the cavalry.

Is there a way to search the records for the barracks, or can anyone identify anything from the uniform, such as regiment? We think this photo was taken approx 1915, but again any confirmation that this is ...

Does anyone recognise this hospital building?

Hi again

I thought that people who are knowledgeable about uniforms might be different to those who are knowledgeable about buildings, hence this final post.

I would be deeply grateful if anyone could tell me if they recognise this building. I presume it's a hospital given the nurses posing in front.

The date is circa 1905. I appreciate there's not much to see of the building in the photo, but I live in hope, particularly ...

1905 Nurse's Uniform

Hi there

I am hoping someone can help me identify the nurses' uniforms in these photos please. I know the photos were taken about 1905 but I really want to know which hospital they were working at.

I'm hoping the brooch in the second photo might be helpful.

The only hints I have from family folklore is that it was possibly Liverpool or Portsmouth (a long way apart I know).

Any suggestions or pointers to ...

Roughly which year might this be?!

The J Turner above the door was probably my 2 x gt grandfather, James Turner (1843 - 1915). However, he was married twice... My 2 x gt grandmother died in 1887 and James remarried in 1889. I'm wondering if that might be one of his wives at the door, but more specifically if it's my 2 x gt grandmother. He's a publican (and joiner) there on the 1901 and 1911 censuses but he doesn't live ...

Photo identification possibly Freemasons?

Can anyone identify the outfit this man is wearing? The photo had pride of place over Grandad's fireplace but we never thought to ask who it was. It is possibly John Love a shoemaker born 1847 in Eye Northamptonshire and died in Aston, Warwickshire in 1905 but I'm not convinced he would have made it into the Freemasons. Thankyou.
