"Taken at Hendley's Portrait Rooms, Pittville St,
adjoining the old Chronicle Office, Cheltenham.
Portraits for Brooches and Lockets"

W. H. Hendley died in 1859, after which his wife Ellen Hendley continued the business in 1860.
In 1861 she was robbed of "two lenses, a camera, and one box of paints".
It's unknown what happened after that, as her name vanishes from the papers.
