    Was this a photograph of the surviving family, apart from Stanton Charles Edgoose who was serving in the trenches in France? If that is the case, then the only person not to be positively identified is the lady on the left in a white blouse. By deduction, we can say that it is Jessie Alice Edgoose (1888-1956) in her twenties. There is certainly a ressemblance to much more recent photographs of her.
