I’d like to introduce…

Edward George "Ted" Turner

Edward George Turner, known affectionately to his family and friends as Ted, was a kind hearted, gregarious, right jolly English gent, loved by all who knew him. He was born on the 27th of June 1911 at Blake Cottage, Horn Street in Winslow, Buckinghamshire, where his father was employed as head groom to Mr Gosling of Blake House.

And His Lovely Wife…

Mystery Monday: Wedding Photo ID

My maternal Grandparents, Edward George TURNER and Phyllis Mary COLLINS, were married in Winslow Buckinghamshire England on 23 January 1938. This photo did not surface until both my grandparents had passed away, and unfortunately no one in the family can identify the man and woman standing on either side of Granddad. The girl to Ted’s right is his younger sister, but the identify of the couple standing, presumably the best man and maid of honor, is a mystery.
