This photograph of the Edrich family may have been taken on 8 April 1922, shortly before Charles Frank Edrich’s marriage to Olive Underdown. Not being an Edrich, she was not in the photograph. According to Neville Edrich’s father, the photograph was taken outside a building in Blofield known as the Granary, which was used for dances and such, like Charles and Olive’s wedding reception.

George H, Charles and, perhaps, Arthur fought in World War I. You can see the importance of the Barcham link: it is remarkable to think that Elizabeth had all these children and lived until the start of the Second World War!
