The two boys were the children of Arthur William Ludlow and Mary Ann Martha Alderman who married in 1894. Kenneth was born in 1895 and Brian in 1900. Their father was an accountant for a timber merchant, he  then set up on his own as a corn and flour dealer. They lived in Adelaide Street before moving to 39 Broad St where, in 1911, they had 8 rooms and employed a domestic servant.
The boys went to St Martin’s School where they both seem to have done well. In 1911 Brian aged 11 years was still at school but Kenneth aged 15 years had left to become a clerk in an engineering firm, no doubt Blackstone’s.

Brian became a Cadet with the Honourable Artillery Company and joined as a Private when he was old enough which was only at the very end of the War. In 1923 he married Evelyn Tibby and they had 2 daughters, Audrey in 1924 and Patricia in 1926. Brian died in Nottingham in 1947 leaving a substantial sum of £56,198. 3s.
