Sheppard Family from Trinidad visit relatives in Wem, Shropshire

My great-grandfather, Alfred Sheppard was born in Chichester, Sussex, but went to Trinidad as a young man, on secondment to the Trinidad Police Force.  He married Virginia de Freitas, a young lady of Portuguese parentage, and made Trinidad his permanent home. 

In this picture, he and Virginia, together with Virginia's father and daughter, are in Wem, Shropshire visiting his brother Charles and family.

The picture has been handed down by Charles' daughter Nell to her Trinidadian cousin John Sheppard who immigrated to England.

This is a colourized version of a unique, undated photo. 

We know it is no later than 1916, the year in which Sebastian (Sebastião) de Freitas (centre) died. 

The seniors are all seated in front, while the younger generation stands behind.

Here's a "Who's Who" of the photo:

1.  Charles A. Sheppard, son of #11 and #8, brother of #2, #4, #6, brother-in-law of #3, cousin of #5


2.  Cyril Sheppard, husband of #3, son of #11 and #8, brother of #1, #4, #6, cousin of #5.

Cyril and his wife Gertrude were married in 1921, so I assume they were engaged here.
