Hmm..jury's out on this one then!  Even my relatives can't agree if it's the same person. I think it isn't the same person, possibly a brother, but then again it could be someone else entirely!  How I wish my nan had written on ALL the photographs!

Having had a look in Photoshop more closely I have changed my mind, the ears are different, but I think they are definitely related.

He is such a nice looking young man I just couldn't resist trying to bring him to life a little.  I left the background alone in order to focus on him.

Wow John-76, what a wonderful job you have done!  I've only just seen this as I have been ill.  Thank you; I am glad to claim him as family (we all seem to be agreed that if it isn't my grandad it must be a close relation, perhaps his brother).  It really does bring him to life doesn't it.  THANK YOU!

Having another shot at this.  Does anyone think this young man looks like the original photo?  This is my nan's father Thomas Marsh Crossley.  No relation to the Donkersleys, although she married one.

I don't think they are the same, the ears are different and the parting.

This is taken much earlier than than the other two, around 1908-12ish so possibly the Father of the young men.

Agree. The eyes look differently set as well.
