Robert Davis added (October 2007): "Arthur Davis was my grandfather and all the family have copies of this photo. The married names of Florence and Violet were Buss and Maund respectively. The photo was taken in the orchard of their house Yew Tree Cottage, Aylburton".

Pete Clark added (June 2010): "... I am pretty sure the Bert Priest is actually Bertie Grantley Preest 1880-1922 who lived at Rose Cottage".

Michael Deacon added (July 2010): "... do you mean Rose Cottage next to Bridge Stores? - that is where I was brought up... with Mr W. J. Jones and Nelly English in 1949 approx".
