Arthur Wightman (1842 - 1924) is the figure on the far left of the photograph, partially obscured by a young lady in front of him, who is thought to be Annie Maud Wightman (1854 - 1940), one of Arthur's sisters. Arthur's wife Edith Wightman (1850 - 1943) can be seen fourth from the left, wearing a dark-coloured coat and hat. The two gentlemen in the centre of the photograph, sat towards the back, wearing caps and with cigars in their mouths, are possibly Benjamin Arthur Wightman (1873 - 1937), Arthur's eldest son and Henry Temple Wightman (1866 - 1920), Arthur's youngest brother, respectively.

The identifiable figures are thought to be as follows:
Back row (stood left to right):
1. Benjamin Arthur Wightman (1873 - 1937), eldest son of Arthur Wightman (1842 - 1924);

Around the time of this photograph Charles Cecil Harland was living in Sheffield at 10 Psalter Lane where he was a law student, articled to Colonel Hebert Hughes C.B., C.M.G (1853 - 1917). Charles Cecil Harland went on to serve as an army Second-Lieutenant and later Captain in the First World War, in Gallipoli and in France, where he wounded four times, mentioned in dispatches and awarded the Military Cross and Croix the Guerre. He later become a director of Joseph & Henry Wilson Ltd, snuff manufacturers, Sheffield and later lived at Westbrook, Sharrow Vale Road, Sheffield.
