Bedwell Photo

I have a family photo taken about August 1916, showing the following, Florence Eva Bedwell at 18 months old sitting on mothers knee, mothers name I believe was Violet. Standing behind is father Arthur H Bedwell in uniform, and also seated is Arthurs sister Nellie.
My mother Florence Eva was born in February 1915 I believe in Watling Street London, her mother Violet died of pnemonia when mum was nine, mum and her younger sister Kathleen Violet were then brought up by aunty Nellie in Staffordshire.
Her father Arthur managed a high class shoe shop before the war, during the war he was a gunner in the royal artillery.
some years after the death of wife Violet circa 1924, Arthur remarried a lady named Williams whos family I believe owned a rubber stamp company in Liverpool.
Has anybody further information. Incidentally mum married William Randall Povey in 1933 in Chester.
Kindest regards Graham Povey
