Performing in Theatres and circuses, particularly Roberts Brothers Circus. Known to have lived in Nottingham post WW2 and South Africa. Christian names Ethel and Emil . Surname maybe Semner.

You could always try contacting Bobby Roberts' through his website bobby-roberts.co.uk/ [www in front] (or easily found by google) - his family ran Robert Bros Circus ..... Or you could try circusfriends.co.uk/ [www in front] where they have a library and hold archives of British Circus Memorabilia.
hope this helps in some way.
