    During WW1 the family lived in Peaslake, Surrey, for a time. My Gran is the little girl standing with her brother. That's Ernest, my great-grandfather with the bike, and I think that's Florence Ellen, my g-gran with the little girl on the wall.

    The lady seated is my great-great grandma, Eliza Ann, with my gran Nellie on the right, with her siblings. This would have been during WW1, as the baby Rhoda was born in 1915.
