Hi John,
Thanks for directing me to the photos I can give details of the people in the photos and I am particularly interested in the Dr MARSDEN (as a boy) Daniel Roper MARSDEN. in 1891 he's a scholar in 1901 he's age 19 and an ironmongers assistant. Do you know how he got the title Doctor? I think it's more likely D.R. MARSDEN! I have the family tree going back to Godfrey MARSDEN b 1755.d 1833 age 78.
