Four generations - back L-R: Emily Hunt (nee Goodchild), Jessie Cattle (nee Hunt). Front: Mary Ann Goodchild (nee Worboys) and Gwen Cattle
Mary Ann & possibly William Goodchild
Obviously Mary Ann again, but not sure on the gent. He looks like Williams brother John who went to the USA but thats just a guess
My mum Gwen Cattle, Mary Ann Goodchild and Jessie Cattle
My mum Gwen Cattle and possibly William Herbert Geeves
I believe this to be William Herbert Geeves and Evelyn May Gray's wedding in 1935. My granddad Alex Cattle (best man) is the far left; my nan Jessie is behind the groom and my mum Gwen is the bridesmaid standing next to the bride. I'm guessing Noah Geeves is the tall gent at the back. Not sure about the lady to his left. Would also be interested to know who is the gent second from left at the back
My nan Jessie is standing behind the lady wearing the spotted dress and my mum is the young girl at the front. Would love to put names to the other people if possible.
This is my nan and my mum. Don't know who the young lad is. Bit of a long shot, but would love to know if this was taken in Ashwell
Mary Ann and my mum at the front; middle row R-L: my nan Jessie, her mum Emily and I guess, Lily Geeves. Back row R - L. my granddad Alex Cattle, possible Noah Geeves, William Hunt (Emilys husband)
No idea who the lady is with Mary Ann
This is my granddad Alex Cattle but I don't know who the lady is
I think this gent appears in some of the other photos, but I don't know who he is
My nan Jessie on the left, Mary Ann at the front, possibly Noah Geeves at the back and no idea of the lady on the right
My Nan, Jessie Cattle nee Hunt was born in Ashwell in May 1899. She was the daughter of William and Emily Hunt, nee Goodchild. Emily was one of William and Mary Ann Goodchild, nee Worboys’ daughters.
My Nan’s parents moved to Islington, North London in the early 1900s but the ties to Ashwell remained firm. My Nan was always very close to her cousin, Violet and her aunt and uncle – Violets parents, Lily and Noah Geeves. When my mum had to be evacuted during WWII, I don’t think there was any arguement where she would go – she was sent to be with Aunt Lily and Uncle Noah. I too have fond memories of visiting Auntie Violet and Uncle Bob in the late 70s/early 80s when they lived at 1 West End.
My grandparents also took lots of photos and below is a section of images that I believe were taken in Ashwell. I have been trying to work out who people are but it’s highly likely that I am wrong. I have added captions to the images stating who I think the subjects are, so if anyone can correct me or fill in any gaps, I would be most grateful.
