The above link relates to a Website by Andrew Tatham. It is a fascinating story, with detailed family trees showing what is possible with extensive research. His site states:
“The culmination of 21 years of research and creation based on a First World War group photograph. A mix of the traditional and innovative new ways of showing history and human life.
The lives of all 46 men in the photograph are told through artefacts, letters, poems, stories, an animated film, family tree drawings, photographs, photomontages, memorials, old stained glass windows, new stained glass windows, & a new group photograph – as shown in the slideshow below and in the pages you can read from the book on this website.”
A number of children have been identified on the photograph: Back Row from right: Lance Renton & Kathleen Craven later Fordham.
Middle Row on far right below Lance Renton is his sister Daisy Renton. Also on the middle row to the left of Mary Chorley is Elsie Craven (later Pickard) (sister of Kathleen above) & next to her is Winnie Morritt later Clough. To the right of Mary Chorley is Olga Oliver.
Front Row: On the left is believed to be Leonard Whetzel & on the right Harry Renton (b1914).

Jarndyce v Jarndyce concerns the fate of a large inheritance. The case has dragged on for many generations before the action of the novel, so that, late in the narrative, legal costs have devoured the whole estate and the case is abandoned.
