We have a collection of photographs in our archive where not all the people are identified in our records. We want to recruit your help in identifying people in these images and to contribute to our clarifying who they are or were. If you can contribute to this project, please always use the reference number accompanying the photographs.

CRDWH Bella – Taken on Coronation Day 1953 at Blakehill School Club, children in Fancy Dress. Do you know the girl on the extreme left and the boy on the extreme right? We believe we know that the other three, from left to right are: Margaret MckInven; Pat Witts and Phillip Jarvis next to the unknown boy. Can you confirm these names, correct the spelling and/or tell us who the unknown children are?
CRDWH 209 – Described as “Worthy’s at the Kings Head” c 1880. Worthy or not, do you recognise any of these men?
CRDWH 211 – Two Cricklade Ladies, taken by G. Diviani of 276 Holloway Road, N. London on the 31st August 1872. Do you recognise these ladies?
CRDWH 212 – Three Cricklade Dames, photo taken about 1880. Any thoughts?
CRDWH 1807 – A group of Cricklade Men enjoying a drink at the Kings Head Cricklade. This is dated between 1891 and 1910. It may be that the gentleman second from left is William Henry Stephens or his brother Louis – what do you think?
CRDWH 2196 – Taken at the St John’s Wood School of Photography by F. Briggs and Son 40, High Street, St John’s Wood London. Do you have any idea who this well-to-do person might be?
CRDWH 2198 – From the studio of Brown Barnes and Bell, photographers, located at 222 & 220 Regent Street. They claimed to be “The Largest photographers in the World” which is all well and good but it doesn’t help identify the lady in the picture. Can you help?
CRDWH 2199 – These two ladies were with the Salvation Army, the photo was a studio picture taken by H.Hemmins of Swindon.
CRDWH 2200 – From the studio of E I Baker of Hailsham; Portrait, Landscape and Equestrian photography was their speciality.
CRDWH 2201 – From the Photographic Studio of William Ash, 119 Newington Causeway who priced their ‘Cartes de Visite’ at 5/- per dozen. Studio reference number was 916, any idea who this young woman might be?
CRDWH 2202 – From the studio of W H Prestwich 155 City Road, London ; it is numbered 1877 on the front. Recognise her?
CRDWH 3441 – Taken in the Red Lion, Cricklade in 1957. We know the person on the extreme left is David Hicks; the lady sitting is Violet Ellis but we don’t know who the third man is with the cigarette. We know that the man sitting in the foreground is George Ellis with Rex Abbot standing at the back. Can you identify the third man and perhaps the sixth and seventh (young ladies) on the right hand side?
CRDWH 4182 – Who is the young lady with the sash, what do you think it says on the banner and do you recognise the banner or any of the people in the photo?

CRDWH 7107 – The little boy below is “Uncle Arch” – do you know who he is?
CRDWH 8039 – On the back of this photo is written “ Is this Woodbine Willie?” who was a clergyman in the first World War. Or is the photograph of the Reverend Charles William Jacob who came to the parish in 1910 for some ten years, many of which he spent in the service of his country – are these the same person and was the Reverend Jacob aka Woodbine Willie?
