My name is Gareth Davies. I am sending this in regards the photo of EMPIRE DAY 1912. My grandmother is in this group, ADA MARCH from Back Street, d.o.b – Sherborne 1898. Married JOHN BUTLER, 15 APRIL 1922 in St Stephens.
In the photo you have, she is just been cut out on the edge, however I do have the same photo with everybody on it. My mother Mollie Davies(BUTLER) is still alive today at the age of 86. Living 5 minutes away from me in south Wales, I have a lot of information about Winsham and its people due to the family growing up there.
The family has a lot of connections to Winsham, including the house built at LAYMORE by my auntie Joyce Hayball (Butler), who is still living at Chard. There is another Auntie living at Yeovil, Freda Woolcott (Butler); all 3 sisters got married at St Stephen's.
I remember going to AUNT GERT (Gertrude) when I was a small boy, This is my Grandmothers sister, she used to live by the park/monument. Western way I think it is called.My grandmother used to live in Bakersfield and more recently before she died in Davies Close.
