Hello. Hello. Hello. It's lovely to meet you, lyn.cam.  ;D  (Don't watch while I do a happy dance & back flip.  ;) )

I'm away from home for a few days, but will send you a private message so we can exchange e-mail addresses so we can get in touch more around the end of the week.

It's sooooooooo great to connect. :)  While I'm in Canada, there is a more closely related living "cousin" in Scotland. Unfortunately, the fellow who "introduced" me to Gertrude and set me on the search path is no longer with us.

Firstly, apologies as i am a newbie and havnt yet found my feet on this site but I had done a search online for Gertrude Ayton and found references to this site. I was doing the search as I have an old autograph album which contains a few film and stage stars from the 30s and Gertrude Ayton's autograph is on one page along with 5 other names. I am assuming that it is the same Gertrude Ayton as the subject of this post. Happy to submit photo of page if anyone is interested and if its indeed possible to post photos!?

Hi,
Thanks for your message. I think tbe photo file is larger than half a meg but ill try the attachments link at bottom and see what happens. Happy to exchange emails and send you a picture of the album page. Id be interested if you could confirm whether its the same person from any other examples of signature you might have.
Thanks in advance
Regards
Chris

This is a reply to the question of Gertrude Ayton's signature - yes this is my Grandmothers' signature.  I hope this helps you.  Thanks lyn.cam

Thank you Lyn.cam. Im guessing the other signatures will be other performers in a theatrical production that the owner of the album went to see. Many thanks again.

Hi

I don't know if this has already been highlighted, but Gertrude appeared in a stage version of The Archers, do you need any information on this?.
