How old is Cissie Layton please?
« on: Wednesday 19 March 14 14:25 GMT (UK) »
Could anyone please estimate the age of Cissie Layton please she was a Band of Hope May Queen in 1921 in Hull. I have a suitcase full of Band of Hope photographs of May Queens dated between 1910 -1938 who I am trying to find Family for prior to them going on display.
Thanks for looking.

Perhaps a little older 21, she has no wedding ring but is wearing a splendid watch maybe a 21st Birthday present?

Lovely photo

Sarah :)

Thanks Sarah....all ideas welcome...there is a beautiful enlarged version of this one too and someone would dearly love to give her a home I'm sure.

Thanks Gadget...me too....I would have said early 20s too...I'm sure you would have a similar complexion at this age too  ;D

That was exactly what went through my mind!

Might be worth a closer look at
Jul/Aug/Sep 1899
Hunslet ref 9b 277
Cissie Lawton   

No cancel that - she died the same year age 0

But I will post anyway, so we can rule that one out.

Okay thanks for looking Liz...It's much appreciated...I also tried looking for Cecilia...Cecily and Frances...but it could bear no resemblance to her real name or it could have been her middle name  :-\
Maybe someone will pick up this thread if they are looking for her on Google.

Wondering about Cissie - I have two in my family - one was really  a Cecil (middle name) and the other was a Cecily.  You could try Cecilia or Priscilla or .....

(same ideas, Carol - will check on another site - whatsinanaeme )
