Eileen Muldoon Flannelly wrote (January 2012):

my grandfather, Samuel G Hodgetts is in the front row somewhere near one of the cracks in the picture. He is a very short man. Another man is Mr. Murray. I think his first name was Eddie. I remember this picture very well. My grandfather was a convert and a well known wrestler. He died in 1945 on Palm Sunday.
If you can identify anyone else in the photo, please Send me an Email and I will add the names.
