Many thanks - yes it is indeed the same family - Gladys May was my Grandmother, her father Robert George was her father. I have a lot of info about the Heslop's of Consett, a little more I hope to obtain tomorrow after a visit (hopefully) to one of the very few descendants i believe are still around the area. I have recently visited the grave of Walter Stanley in Albert, France , who was one of the children who left for Canada and subsequently killed in WW1. I am hopeful of finding out more about 2 of his brothers (out of 13 children) who I am told also went to Canada with him. I am more than happy to give you as much info about the Heslop's and indeed the bits I have found about the Menzies' as you want. I do have a secure e mail site Graeme4242@hotmail.com if you wish to contact me direct. Please do, both I and my parents would love to hear from another family member!
Many thanks for your reply,
nb today I have visited a relative of Duncan Menzies at Selkirk, Scotland - some history of photographic business in the Borders is still to be found there.
