    Iris Houghton: I am attaching a photograph which I think is wonderful. It appears to contain the whole of Selina's and Joseph's family. I have tried to work out who is who from the information that you have listed. There appear to have been seven children but there are more people than that in the photograph so I am wondering if the others were spouses of the older children. If you know the identities I would love to know. The two girls, far right on the back row and far left bear a definite resemblance to myself as a child.

    Selina & Joseph (senior) are on the front row surrounded by their family. I was told by my Mother that Alfred was second from the right at the back and Hannah Sarah was third from the right on the front row. I did have contact from a lady in Australia who is the daughter in law of Joseph Brooksbank (Jnr) and she said that the man in the centre back row wearing a uniform was Harold Brooksbank and that he had unfortunately been killed in World War I.
