It is Notts and yes it is a family in Eastwood; it was the cattle market at Meadow Lane he went to this morning which I should have said. I was very curious about the society as there are so many photos with reference to D. H. Lawrence and even a card about a memorial in Mexico.

There is a photograph of the chap, who is pictured with a lot of the memorabilia, next to the headstone for the family

Frances Daisy Akers (Jepson) born 1912 who married George Leonard Akers born 1911...married 1936 Basford reg.
Garry ans S* which is covered by the flowers he has laid.

Have the address for 'Gary' on the postcard and when Frances dies, certainly 3 children born in Notts and I found an acknowledgement online in google books. So sad that everything was jumbled up in the crate.

Hubby came back with photos this morning after a trip to the cattle market and the crate he paid for is full of family history for the Akers family and his photos over time of D H Lawrence memorabilia. A postcard in there dated 1974 thanks Mr. Akers for the newsletter, so before I dive in to find out more, does anyone here have more knowledge about the group or Mr Akers who lived in Eastwood ?

Have googled but wanted to ask here first while I look.

Some of the photos are stamped with local history library P. L Nottingham so I would love to find out more, the family I can research as they kindly took a photo of the Akers grave which has the maiden name of their mother!

Had a look in the papers and Ralph H. T. Neale was granted a decree nisi in November 1931, Ralph was  living at 26 Burleigh Street, Sunderland. May I tactfully add, Mrs Neale had met a Mr. Elliott.

I did have a look in google books, looks like he might have written the music around 1720, there was a 3rd edition 1733. There is a mention of his surname and variations...Holdrad/Holdrayd; just taken these few comments from the snippet view, hoping it might help you.
