Arthur Cecil Dalrymple -- Feb 24, 1878-March 12, 1940,--

Mary Jane Cuthbertson -- 1877-1949



The one entitled "Barbara, Lennox, Celia, Arthur and Olive" 

is of my father (Lennox, 2nd from left) and his brother and 

sisters taken at my first wedding in 1972.  As far as I know 

this is the last picture of them all together as Celia died 

shortly after this.  Sadly, only Barbara (wearing a yellow 

coat in the picture) is still living.  She is the mother of my 

cousin Julie who used to write to Diane Bauer. In the 

background and to the left, you can just see my mother Dorothy 

in a pink suit,  Violet Dalrymple in blue (estranged wife of 

Alan Dalrymple, son of Albert Victor. I believe she 

corresponded with and may have met Sybil) and Ivy 

in cream who was Arthur's wife.


 Barbara is my father’s youngest sister.  She was born on 6th February 1918 in Smethwick in Birmingham and was 4 years older than my father.  She married Anthony Colin Thomas in Birmingham in 1941.  They have 3 children - Julie, Alan & Ian. Tony died in 1997.  Olive was born in 1908, married William Orton in Birmingham in 1941 and died in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire in 1994 - they did not have any children.  William was a widower when they married and had children of his own.
