Think this might be your granddad:

Gadget - I don't think that chap is my grandfather - seems shorter and stockier, and older than 16 or 17.

This is Bert in 1921 or 1927 - the written date is not too clear. He is back row, far right. This gives a better view regarding height etc.

Try this.

He's got a vague resemblance to Jos Buttler (cricketer) in the 1921 one!

Funny you mention cricket !

Bert was a great cricketer and my dad always called him "Laker" - after Jim Laker - he must have taken a lot of wickets in a match.

Is that him at the back of the staff photo?

The left hand one is a clip from the group photo, which I've enlarged and lightened a bit  - same ears  ;D

Oh ... I don't know.

When people lean over babies and say they've got their father's chin - I never see it !

Gadget , you have been a true star with this.

I've emailed the pics to Stourhead.

When I look at that pic of my lovely Gran in my avatar, I see a lot of my dear Dad there  :)

I'd be really interested in their answer, Steve  :)

You may remember this group photo was dated to 1917-20, which ties in with a Stourhead postcard that my grandfather Bert sent home in 1917. http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=786404.0

I have had a reply from a very helpful historical researcher at Stourhead.

The building, and people in the photo, are NOT recognisable as Stourhead.

The researcher forwarded the photo to the authors of ‘The Long Weekend - Life in The English Country House Between The Wars’, and ‘The Country House at War - Fighting the Great War at home and in the trenches’ but neither could identify the house.

There are limited staff records at Stourhead. They do not name any Barlows, but this does not mean they did not work there.

Clearly my grandfather Bert and his father were at Stourhead – or somewhere close by? – in 1917.

I know it is a tall order, but, if not Stourhead, where was this group photo taken?  I suppose Newbury or West Berkshire would be the next obvious choice.

For completeness, I’ve attached the reverse of the photo.
