There are three ways of looking at photographs of people ...


There are nearly 650 photographs included in this database, plus two series covering the weddings of Dominic Sawkins and of Joachim Sawkins.  There are a number of different ways in which you can look at these photographs:

  1. You can look at photographs by their identification number.

  2. For certain family members where there are a number of photographs you can look at special pages by clicking on the family tree below.

  3. Some photographs have non-family members in them - friends and others.  See the list below. 


All photographs in number order 

This will enable you to look through thumbnails of all photos and see the ones you want full size.

To reduce the strain on your computer the photos have been split into groups of just under 200.  Click on the links below to go to each group.

The photos are in no particular order - if you want to find the ones of a particular person,  see if their name is below, or go to  Names .



Photographs of particular people


Where there are more than 10 photographs of a particular person they have been brought together for convenience.


If you click on a red name below it will take you to a page of thumbnails.  Black names do not have sufficient photos for a special page - to look at photos for them, and others, go to Names.


This time the photographs are in date order.
