I have found a copy of this picture in my grandads collection with names written on that match those mentioned in earlier comments, so I think the additional ones should be correct:-

Back row left to right:-
Frank Farmer, Bill Cox ?? Pim Cox ?? ??

Middle row:-
Mrs Saggers ?? Eva Swain, Jack Swain, Molly Cox, Ben Saggers, Wyn Swain, Fred Swain ?? Beth Cox

Front row:-
Mrs Swain (Nancy Swain on her lap), Mr Swain, Bert Swain, Em Cox, Tommy cox, Mrs Cox (Tom Morrison on her lap)

Children at front:-
Violet Saggers and Marjorie Cox (not sure teddy bears name) :)

I can confirm the comments by my niece Pauline (Polly) of the wedding photo of my Uncle Bertie
and Auntie Emily. She was correct the lady was my Grandmother Swain next to my Grandad
and the little girl is my dear Sister Nancy aged 2. She also recognised correctly my Mum & Dad
Jack and Eva.
I never met my Uncle Bertie unfortunately he died in the year of my birth 1935.

What a lovely photo. I recognised my grandparents Jack and Eva Swain, middle row 3rd and 4th from the left. I think it may be my Aunt Nancy sitting on the lap of the lady first left in the front row. The lady whose lap she is on could be Great Grandma Swain, she resembles photos I have in my possesion. Next time I am visiting my brother in Stevenage I will drop off some old photos!
Thanks again for a wonderful website.
Polly (Pauline) Macmillan nee Swain
