Wightman family and friends group of 14 individuals in unknown garden setting, c. 1910

The identifiable figures are thought to be as follows:
Back row (stood left to right):
1. Benjamin Arthur Wightman (1873 - 1937), eldest son of Arthur Wightman (1842 - 1924);
2. Mr Harland possibly possibly Charles Cecil Harland (1888 - 1946) one of the sons of the Rev. Albert A. Harland (1839 - 1921), vicar of Harefield, Middlesex. Charles Cecil Harland was also younger brother of Albert Harland (1869 - 1957) who became Sheffield MP for Ecclesall. Around the time of this photograph Charles Cecil Harland was living in Sheffield at 10 Psalter Lane where he was a law student, articled to Colonel Hebert Hughes C.B., C.M.G (1853 - 1917). Charles Cecil Harland went on to serve as an army Second-Lieutenant and later Captain in the First World War, in Gallipoli and in France, where he wounded four times, mentioned in dispatches and awarded the Military Cross and Croix the Guerre. He later become a director of Joseph & Henry Wilson Ltd, snuff manufacturers, Sheffield and later lived at Westbrook, Sharrow Vale Road, Sheffield. Note: the fourth figure on the back row, who looks very similar to this gentleman, may actually be Charles Cecil Harland instead or one of his brothers;

5. Denis Conway Wightman (1876 - 1933), Arthur Wightman's third son;
6. Thomas Wilson Mappin (1877 - 1916), son of Sir Wilson Mappin J.P. (1848 - 1925) of Abbeydale Grange, who lived at the time at 26 Oakholme Road, Sheffield.
Front row (sat left to right):
2. Florence Ethel Broughton Thompson (nee Noon) (1863 - 1939), wife of Alfred Edward Thompson above;

5. or 6. One of these two ladies is probably Constance Mary Wightman (nee Lockwood) (1877 - 1944), wife of Henry Temple Wightman (1866 - 1920), Arthur Wightman's youngest brother;
