Bowls club Outing

Comments about this page

  • Hi,
    The people you mention Kay, Len and Gladys are brother and sister. Leonard was my grandad and was married to Ada. Gladys, his sister, was married to Arnold Griffin. Arnold is the gentleman 7th on the back row. Their daughter Jean Griffin is the first girl on the front row from the left. My grandad did indeed have a bicyle shop and grocers shop on West Park Street. Arnold Griffin, Gladys’s husband was Station Master at Chatteris Staion for many years. As far as I am aware Len or Gladys did not have a grandchild named Kay I am afraid.

  • Afraid I can’t pin anyone down precisely, kay, since, as Photo Conservator with the museum for almost twenty years, I have had many interviews/chats with elderly Chatteris residents (sadly many of them no longer with us) showing them photos and recalling the names of faces from their past. This practice has continued with my colleagues on ccan at presentations and ‘At Homes’ over the past eight years and Len Barker was remembered by many from the “bike shop”! Some of the namers were children on this photo.

    Interesting that I have found a note from an ‘At home’ of two octogenarians discussing taking the accumulator (over seventies will smile) to the radio shop that Len’s father ran before Len took it over as the Bike shop. Seems the grocer Alfred Barker I mentioned as a comment on the Moult photo on here changed his occupation after the 1911 census.

    Have you now placed Len and Gladys on your tree?
