My maternal grandfather: Charles Joseph Sole (b: 23 May 1885) as a boy - year of photo unknown.
Charles Joseph Sole when he was in the rifle brigade in WW1. I have labelled the file 1914, though it may be later. He was invalided out with a shrapnel wound to the back (I still have the piece of shrapnel !! )
Charles Joseph Sole with his wife Rhoda Disher (b: 18 May 1886) taken the early 1950s
His father, Charles (Irones) Sole (Jul-Oct 1851 in Bethnal Green, Middlesex). His mother was Mary Iron(e)s; the only record I have seen for the middle name 'Irones' is on his marriage certificate to Jane Elizabeth Graves (b: c1849) on 24th August 1884. He is named as 'Charles Joseph Sole' and marked as 'deceased' in on his son's marriage certificate dated 18 December 1910.
A picture of Bertha Sole - date unknown. I do not know the link to my family, but as I have the photo, there must be one! Someone may have some information on her.
