Well done, Joan and Gareth
I hope the NLW includes a link --- makes searching so much faster and
it is people like us who will be the principal users anyway.
Like Alison, I noticed but have no idea why so many of those
photographed (but not all) have both hands splayed on their chest. I
presume this was police practice for some reason. (Was deformity of
hands or loss of fingers common among the poor (ie 'criminal
classes') at the time? If so, that might help identification. You can
hardly expect to see fingerprints!).

Joan Sims has compiled a name finding aid to the NLW's Digital
Mirror database that was mentioned onlist recently.
I've also asked the NLW if they would like to place a link to it
from their pages
