Golden Wedding of Admiral and Lady Luard

Taken: 1908, Ref: M3101

The Golden Wedding of Admiral Sir William and Lady Luard. They and their sons and daughters are here in a group at the family home at Witham Lodge. It’s welcome and unusual to be able to put faces to the names of the Admiral’s sons and daughters. He and Lady Luard had 11 children.

These are the names of the people on the photograph.
