This is my great grandad i believe. My Grandad was Tommy. Im confused though as my grandad only had one sister to my knowledge and she was called Lilly and sang and had a stage name of 'Sandra'. I met Bertha and all the names you have mentioned i have heard of so im sure im on the right track. Id like to know more about Peggy..My dad is Wilfred barnes
