An update 10 years later...

I eventually found a death certificate and Edmund Arrowsmith died at Dover in Nov 1871 from TB. He is buried at St James, Western Heights, Dover.

From newspaper reports I found the 1st Battalion had only arrived at Dover a few months before from Woolwich (where he was at the time of the 1871 census).

I still hope to get to Kew one day and try to find out when he joined up.

Yes I think so. If Nick has done more research since this ancient thread maybe he knows the answer and will update us eventually :)

Yes that 's right Ruskie.

Original poster Nick found photo in family collection. Searched for an Ormonde Cottage in 1911 and found the one in Malvern Wells despite having no known connection to the area. Coincidentally a family named Wood were in residence - his family name. Wondered if the photo showed the Malvern Wells house - it doesn't. I think his Ormonde Cottage is more likely in the area his Woods are from ("up north")

But Julie is related to the Woods at Ormond Cottage, Malvern Wells in 1891/1911, now 33 Kings Road, Malvern Wells. Does this make better sense  :)

Hi Julie, the house in your family tree is in Kings Road, Malvern Wells and is now number 33 I think. If you look at street view on maps you will see it is in a terrace of 4 houses. It is not the house in the photo at the top of this thread.

Hope this helps a bit. If you have any more Malvern questions then please get in touch.

For info - Malvern Wells was included in the Hanley Castle census district. I will take a proper look later and see if I can find out more. Alternatively there is a very active Malvern History facebook group who would no doubt help if you are happy for me to share it there?

The colour one is amazing, thank you so much Dr Dude.
As the photo was amongst many other Ginifer photos I just thought it would be connected somehow, even by marriage. I will keep looking for suitable candidates.
Thanks everyone for your interest  :)

2nd try...

Hi Jim. She married John Ginifer in 1909 and was from Bath originally but moved to Worcester by 1901. Parents James and Laura.

Just checking in after work and thank you so much for all of the replies :-) The enhancements are great as well so thank you to Peter and handypandy for your time. That line at the bottom is torn right through and has Sellotape on the back!

Thanks Jim for the date suggestion, this will definitely help narrow down any suspects.

I've attached a photo of Fanny Ginifer nee Keepings who was born 1884, with her son Jim b1908. It is a very tiny snap so hope it is clear enough. I think she does resemble the mother in the original photo (which could be her mother going by the date) However I have checked the census for her family and Fanny appears to be an only child so that seems to rule her out.

I will keep looking :-)

Thanks for reading

**edit** please bear with me as I make the picture fit the page better
