Hi
I have an received old picture of E Rowles and son(s) Chimney Sweeps.
I am trying to identify him and his family with regard to my tree.
Maybe somebody recognises him?

BTW a friend has told me that the motorcycle most likely was registered in or around Guildford

Thanks, Jenny Photo 2 large.JPG .

Cannot identify from Photograph, but, there is a Newspaper Article Thorpe | Surrey Advertiser | Saturday 13 March 1943 | British Newspaper Archive on an Edward Rowles

THORPE - The death occurred suddenly on Wednesday at his home at Thorpe of Mr. Edward Rowles. He was 86. For the past 70 years Mr. Rowles had carried on business as a chimney sweep, and several of his sons carried on the same trade.

I have tried various combinations of E Rowles +Sweep/Chimney etc, found this by putting names beginning with E before Rowles. It is all I could find.

Regards
Mark

I would like to hear from anyone with an interst in the ROWLES family of chimney sweeps.
I think I have information about the young Edward Rowles.
