Can you help?
Trev Valler knows his grandfather William Alexander Crossan emigrated to New Zealand where he married in 1898.
Now he is hoping someone might recognise either the people or the location in these photographs in his bid to track down his English relatives. He said: “Using all sorts of resources, not one record has been found in the UK relating to him or his family.
“Therefore, I am entirely dependent on identification and location of his sister and family in front of their house, said to be on the banks of the River Thames. Precisely where on the River Thames is not known.”
The photos came from an aunt, long deceased, and were taken in the 1930s. His grandfather’s sister is in the front seat of the car, with his niece in the back seat in front of their house. The driver is the husband of the niece or the sister.
On the left hand gate post just above the man’s shoulder are some barely visible letters that read: TWN, R or WN and an 8 or a B.
The other photo shows his niece at the same house with her two sons.
The names of the people in the photos are unknown.
Mr Valler said: “Any information whatsoever, that may help in identifying the people or house location would be hugely appreciated. This would be the key to finding my grandfather’s family.”
