MartinW88 thank you so much for that.  It is marvellous to see their autographs.  Do you think the sketch is of your Grandmother?
James -Victoria, Australia originally from Keynsham, Somerset.
Heale/Hale - Keynsham, Somerset
Vincent - Illogan/Redruth, Cornwall.  Moved to Sculcoates, Yorkshire; Grass Valley, California; Timaru, New Zealand and Victoria, Australia.
Williams somewhere in Wales - he kept moving
Ellis - Anglesey

I'm pleased you enjoyed the autographs.  My Grandmother was a very lovely lady, and I have some photo's of her when she was younger, but she doesn't bear much semblance to the 'beauty' in the sketch.

Just a note.  Up until I last saw him 18 months ago Alfred Denville's son or maybe it's his grandson was alive and well and living in Surrey.

There is a home for retired actors called Denville Hall.  That could be an avenue to explore.
Williams, Owens, Pritchard, Povall, Banks, Brown.

Oh how rude of me Beeonthebay, I failed to respond to your post three years ago.  I do apologise.  From my understanding after Edwin died Agnes seemed to do some travelling and settled in London. 

I found one obituary in the recent FindMyPast free days for the centenary of the Amistace and it said that he was providing entertainment for the troops as well as fighting during WW1.

I will look into Denville Hall to see if there is anything online.
