This photograph portrays three of the children of Mrs. Belcher, née Jessie Sloane Notman (1859-1942). They are Frederick, Alice and Lawrence.
The family of Jessie and Henry Martyn Belcher included seven children: Frederick Gordon (1885-1970); Alice Dorothy (1887-1946); Henry Lawrence (1889-1946); Charles Stuart (1891-1917); Edith Constance (1893-1971); Leslie Kenneth (1895-1918); and William Vincent (1901-1957).
Frederick was the family's eldest child. His marriage to Mary Peel produced one daughter, Helen.
Alice Dorothy was the Belcher's second child. She would later marry W. E. Hargreaves.
Henry Lawrence (1889-1946) was the family's third child.
