Text From Source: I am the grand daughter of Emma Leona Kate Coles. She and the family lived at colesberg in Arnside ,which is a small village on Morcambe Bay.The Coles name still continues through the line from Robert.

I have sent you two photos of Kate Coles . The one of her wedding has three of the Coles women on, Kate who is getting married her mother who is the lady behind the one at the front and the brides maid on the left is Margaret Elizabeth Coles who is Berthas daughter. Albert F took over his fathers building business and built quite a lot of houses in Arnside.My father worked for him for a short while, you will have guessed from the house name Colesberg that this was the family home.Bertha married Peter Craig, Cissey never married, Louie married a Coulston and their youngest son was killed flying a glider into Holland. Albert married but only had a daughter so that the remaining Coles come from Roberts line.He married twice, his first wife died of cancer and he married her nurse.
