I've altered the heading as suggested.

Yes its Evelyn Victoria.

I have May and Frederick Stanley Hughes, her probate but not his, although there's a 1978 death in Hampshire that may be his.

No I haven't found any children so far.

Thanks to all for you help so far.

May Clara dies in 1985 (Shirley, Southampton) - similarly look for wills etc

If you alter your heading to include 'Edward Lacey, 1859, Newark' then it should be picked up if anyone does a google search. That way people looking for him and his family may come across your posting on here and try to contact you directly - so keep your contact details on genes up-to-date.

May Clara appears to have married Frederick Stanley Hughes (from wills and administration on national probate for Clara Lacey)
Have you managed to trace their deaths and/or children?

Thanks to everyone who've shared information. I do have the majority of the information on the immediate family and am working my way towards an actual relative. If all else fails I'll probably just contact a family history society in Southampton or there about to see if they can help.
In the meantime I'll just keep plodding along.

Have you looked to see if anyone has any of the parents or children in their trees on here, and then tried to make contact with the tree owner?

Hello, I'm trying to find any living descendants of Edward Lacey b1859 Newark and Clara Adelaide Burch b1859 Ipswich.

They had 7 children :- Minna, Edward, Charles, Bertie (lost in Titanic disaster) Dorothy, Evelyn and May Clara.

Family lived in Southampton area in Hampshire.

I have what I believe are photographs of some of the family and would like to return them to the family.
They came to me via Dorothy who was my aunts mother-in-law.

Here's hoping! Thank you.
