Photo of me (Bill Ware) My brother Peter,my three sisters ,Joanne,Mandy and Janet with our Mum(Joan Ware nee Saggers)
This photo was taken in 1985 in the garden of Mum and Dad's at Crawley, Peter had come over from New Zealand for Mum and Dad's Fortieth wedding Anniversary
This photo came from my sister Janet's collection, I would guess it was taken circa 1996
This photograph is of Uncle Bert and a lady who I don't recognise,I would hazard a guess that the lady was his Mother in law as she looks very much like Aunty Doris (Uncle Bert's wife) hopefully Sylvie Dianne or Tony (uncle Bertt's children) can confirm this, the photo is from my sister Janet's collection,

The top picture is cropped from the group photo that i posted a few day's ago,the picture came with a letter to John from our Mums and Dad's cousin Jack,
the picture is of our Nan's Mother ,( Granny Jelly ) his Mother Ruby , together with her children Including Jack who sent the picture , his sister's ,Ruby and Doris and Nan's youngest sister Margaret ,
when my cousin John Collins fetched his collection of photographs , there was also another picture amongst them of a lady which looked to me like the same person but older, John wasn't sure who the lady was and thought it might be Aunty Ag , I sent the picture to my cousin Andy and asked him if he could ask his Mum ( Aunty Betty ) if she could identify who it was,
immediately Aunty Betty identified her as Nannie's sister Margaret Jelley or Mag's as the family called her , anyway I decided the best way to be able to compare them properly was to crop the head's off the photos and put them together and here they are below ,
what do you all think, if everyone let's me know I will post any reply's anyone send's me together with these pictures :
Andy has emailed me and he agrees they are both the same person
DIane has just contacted me and she also thinks that they are both picture's of Aunty Mag's

This picture has lost the right hand side of it ,it has happened on this one and all the pictures that I have loaded in the last few day's ,if you click on the photo to enlarge it you will see the full picture
This lovely photo is of our Uncle Bert , Aunty Doris and their children Tony and Sylvie
circa 1953 , ( from Sylvies collection )
This is a photograph of Jack Jelley, he was in the Pioneer core of the Coldstream Guards for twelve years , he fought in South Africa in the Boer War and left the army in 1902 and then he reinlisted in 1915 for World War One , he was too old by that time to be sent to the front, so he was posted to Deptford ,looking after the horses,that were being shipped to France for the Cavalry and the Officers, he was the Father of our Grandmother Eva Saggers ( nee Jelley ) he is described on his army record's as fair complection with blue eyes, his wife Charlotte Naomi Roberts had dark hair and brown eyes ,my Nan was brown eyed and most of her children had brown eyes and dark hair and so did her husband ( our Grandad Albert Saggers) but my Mother Joan Saggers inherited his blue eyes and fair hair which has passed on to all of her children and most of her grandchildren
This is a picture of Brian Rouse and Linda Rouse ( nee Saggers) This is one of Johnnie and Kath's
( There is a glitch in the new website program which covers the right hand side of each picture , if you click on the picture it will increase to the full size )

Click on the picture to enlarge it , in order to see all of it , the picture has shrank for some reason
This is a photo of Lee and Ros's wedding day ,it was a really great day , the two older girls are Lee's eldest daughter's from Lee's first marriage ,Shelby and Saphire all the other children are Lee and Ros's, since their wedding they have had another two children , the youngest boy is named after me , ( Bill Ware ) which I am really so chuffed about, I have posted a picture of him below.
This is a picture of me ( Bill Ware ) my eldest son also Bill Ware and Lee and his wife Ros's youngest son also Bill Ware ,
I also have a photo in my collection of my dad Bill Ware with his Dad who was also Bill Ware together with his Father ( my greatgrandad ) who was also named Bill Ware ( he was born in 1865) my son Bill only has one child ( Nickie). so you can imagine how pleased I was that my nephew Lee and Ros named their youngest son William !
This picture has once again lost some of it's width ,if you click on it it will widen
I think this picture was taken at Tommy's wedding to Wendy Clarke in 1955 ,the front row I think are Uncle Jack Saggers, Aunty Eve Collins (nee Saggers) our Nan ( Eva Saggers) holding Peter in her arms, Tom Collins my Mum Joan Ware ( nee Saggers) , Johnny Collins , Marjorie Or Marion ( I am not sure if I am right with Johnny's ladies name in this picture ) and on the right Aunty Glad ( Gladys Saggers nee Hanifan ) this picture is from John Collins's collection .
Pete Rouse ( married to Janet Ware) Dave De Hoedt (married to JoanneWare ) and Lee Ware ( my nephew )
This is the type of photo I like not posed for , I wonder what Dave was talking about ? this snap was took at Lee's wedding at Buxted Place , it was a really lovely day , everyone really enjoyed theirselves.
I think this picture was taken at Herne Bay circa 1977 ,it looks like they were having a great holiday,
for those who are reading this who are not family from left to right they are Pete Rouse Mandy Ware, Joan Ware ( nee Saggers) ( my Mum) Joanne Ware, Janey Rouse, Scott Rouse Bill Ware senior , ( my Dad ) the picture was taken by Janet Rouse ( nee Ware ) ( my sister )
I think this great photograph must have been taken circa 1937 it was probably taken by Aunty Eve and it is part of Johnny Collins collection
