HGT 3 10 Hestercombe Gardens Grounds Staff April 1914 web

Search is on to identify Herstercombe workers in 1914 photo

HESTERCOMBE Gardens near Taunton are looking for help to solve a local mystery.
A spokesperson said: “We need the people of Somerset to help identify the men in this 1914 photo.
“We have just had a recent breakthrough, so we now know the identity of eight of the 17 people in the image.
“Thanks to his granddaughter, Julie Foster, who sent us his garden notebook, we have been able to identify George Thomas Collier in this photo of the gardens and grounds staff at Hestercombe House in April 1914. He is seated front row, extreme right.

“It would be brilliant to give the rest of these men names, see if we can piece together their lives and help us fill in the gaps of Hestercombe’s history.”
