Conductors:-

1894 - R H Cole

They were playing at Tranmere Rovers new stadium in 1912.

There appears to be very little information on the band, other than what DD found.
I haven't come across any as yet linking William with the band, not suggesting there isn't any.

You probably have the following brief information, it may help others who are looking.

William Hoyle McEwan, born, 1838/9, Limerick, Ireland, Died, Birkenhead, 1905.
Married, Margaret Galvin, Margaret died 1891, Birkenhead.

Remarried, Catherine Ann Evans, 1893, Toxteth Park.

Census info
1891, Hazel St, Birkenhead, Occupation, Professor of Music

1901, Borough Rd, Birkenhead, Musician.

1911, Pym St, His Widow and Children

In 1876, he must have been in India, a daughter, Charlotte was born there.

The 1881 census has William Hoyle McEwan recorded as a pensioner, at 42 years old, with children born in India.

Ex Army,
William Moyle McEwan (Transcription Error),
Chelsea Pensioner.

Dad was born 1903. So it was a later time than that photo. Will dig it out and post it. By the way both he and my uncle served there time as shipwrights down the yard.
