We have had some more positive information on the photographs, this has come as a result of some steady research done in Tavistock By Alex Mettler who has been quietly beavering away over the past few months.
The wedding is that of Florence Minnie Westlake and Gerald Bousfield Booth and took place at the Congregational church Tavistock in 1919
The groom was a Lieutenant of the Middlesex Regiment and R.A.F and was based at the Armament School in Uxbridge.  The bride was a nurse (perhaps explains the nursing pictures), oldest daughter of Samson Treliving Westlake and niece of Elizabeth Jane Baker of Rydal Mount (which would explain why the wedding pictures were taken there).
The family photographs are of Samson Treliving Westlake senior of Falmouth, second wife Louisa and surviving children, taken between 1903 and 1909 when he died.
His youngest daughter Rhoda Mary Westlake emigrated to Australia in 1927, married John Holt Lyon farmer in Pitt Street Methodist Church, Auckland in 1932. They farmed at Inglewood Taranaki where Rhoda died in 1975.
There are two postcards in the collection addressed to miss R Westlake at Rydal Mount.

The search continues

A change of tack now I am afraid.
It would appear as if our NZ connection will not bear fruit.

Rhoda Mary Lyon (Nee Westlake) "died without issue" as they say, so the possibility of passing these pictures on to a family member seem to be more profitable to a UK (Tavistock) connection.

A probate is available on her through Wellington archives and will get that checked out to see if there is a direct descendant of her

I will open another post seeking descendants of the Westlake family.

Alan.

At last, we have come to a successful conclusion to this search.

We have made contact with the NZ family, the Loyds and as mentioned earlier the trail stops with the death of Rhoda Mary Loyd (Westlake).
The Westlake connection has finally been made and we have located a grandson of Samson Treliving Westlake, a few T's to be dotted and Is to be crossed and we can put this thread to bed.

Thanks to all the contributors big and small I had minimum input merely coordinating the data in put.

Another victory for the team at Rootschat.
