Rupert Allan Carter 1893-1970




The last person from the Catlow Collection I haven’t mentioned before is Rupert Allan Carter, listed on the back of the wedding photo (previously posted) of his friend James Wilkinson to Connie Catlow in 1920.

Rupert was born in the 4qtr 1893 in Nelson, Lancashire, the son of Frank Carter & Mary Alice nee Spencer. In 1911 they were living at 40 Chapel House Rd, Nelson along with two other children Rose Lilian & Irvine Carter. In 1926 Rupert married Lily Stansfield, it seems they didn’t have any children and after Lily died in 1941 Rupert married Amelia Howarth nee Heys in 1951. Amelia died in Plymouth in 1962 and Rupert in 1970 also in Plymouth.


If anyone knows anything about or is connected to the CARTER family please do contact me, I would love to pass the photos onto a family member, even a distant one. Contact by email is preferable but if you are going to leave a comment please don’t forget to include your email address.
