Sunday School was a serious matter in 1910

Extract from Spalding Guardian
SUNDAY School was a serious business in the early part of the 20th century, as this image
submitted by Barbara Claxton illustrates.
The photograph shows her late father-in-law, Frank Claxton, pictured fourth from right on the back row of the group of Weslian Sunday School members at Holbeach St Johns in 1910.
Barbara, who married the late Maurice Claxton in 1959, says “Frank and his Wife Gladys lived
in Monks Hall Cottage at Quadring, Frank working for Mr Caswell for about 70 years and becoming very well known in the village”. Barbara says:
He used to get bus loads of people together to go to places and he was involved in organising whist drives.
Can anyone recognise an ancestor in the photograph?
