    Can you help with this photo? Charlie had many sisters and so his sister Ivy was the bridesmaid. Charlie's only brother (Hector) had died 11 years previously, so he chose his cousin Bill. We think Bill is Leonard William Cameron McDonald but there is some doubt about this as he would have been 19 years old at the time of the wedding and Bill looks older in this photo. Also he was known as Len rather than Bill. If you can help, please send a message through 'Contact Us' on the bottom right corner of the homepage.
