The photo was taken in 1948, after loosing my dad in the 2nd war mother re-married when I was 6 years old. Is that your mother John far left, I can see Peggy 5th from left and I think Grandma Sutton 2nd right and is that Matt kneeling left. There are two boys who I don't think are Suttons, the boy in the white shirt at front looks like Keith Worthington and the older boy in the suit could be Freddy Heyworth the boy in front of Freddy is James Sutton the only others I can put names too are Joe Woods my dads best friend who gave mother away and Alice Banks Brides maid.

Kneeling L to R:- Uncle Matt Shaw, Cousin Lilian McGarry, my father George Davies with me in front of him, Grandfather John Sutton, at the end Uncle Jack Sutton. The two children in the sleeveless pullovers are cousins Brian and Jim Sutton I think. Are the other two not you and your brother David?

Hi David, I have just seen Shirleys photo with I presume you and Albert on. By the amount of people on both photos it was quite a big wedding. [I'm going to count them.] Of coarse I dont remember it as I was only 2. The date that Shirley has given means that my brother George had been born by then [May '48] I wonder where he was?

When you have finished counting John add another 5 apparantly most of my uncles where in the pub. David
