Can you help to reunite this World War 1 photograph with the WOOLLARD family from Holloway?

Many of the fascinating old World War 1 photographic postcards I find at Postcard Fairs unfortunately have no clues to help identify them to research and possibly reunite with a  family member.

However on this occasion a lovely old photograph that I found seemed to show husband, wife and son and had Mrs WOOLARD of 34 Bryantwood Road in Holloway written on the back.



I started by searching the surname WOOLARD on the 1911 census but nothing showed up but then on trying a variant spelling of WOOLARD I found the family living at 34 Bryantwood Road in Holloway.

The occupants of the address in 1911 were George Henry WOOLLARD aged 34 a Civil Servant working for the Post Office, his wife Martha Elizabeth WOOLLARD aged 35 and their son Cyril Richard WOOLLARD aged 4, as below:

George Henry WOOLLARD married Martha Elizabeth AUSTIN on 17th November at St Peter’s Church in Islington, as below:

George Henry WOOLARD survived World war 1 and in 1939 he and his wife Martha were living at Tintern in Amersham in Buckinghamshire.

George Henry WOOLLARD died aged 70 in the April quarter of 1946 aged 70 and Martha Elizabeth WOOLLARD nee AUSTIN died aged 87 in the January quarter of 1963, both in the Islington registration District.

If you have a link to the WOOLLARD or AUSTIN families please send me a message as it would be great to reunite this super old World War 1 photograph with a family member if possible.

Many thanks
