Storey - Martin wedding, Cinderford, 1927

image Storey - Martin wedding, Cinderford 1927.

Margaret wrote (Jan 2007): The picture was taken about 1927 in Cinderford. The bride and groom are my Aunt, Miss Beatrice Martin of Cinderford and Mr. Alfred Storey of Cumberland, which I believe is now Cumbria. The best man is Mr. Ray Capener on the left of the bridegroom (the tallest man) and the little girl is Betty Martin of Cinderford, niece of the bride, whose father was Mr. Ernest Martin. He had a gents' outfitters shop on the corner of Wesley Road and High Street and sold it to Hodges Gents Outfitters later on. Mrs Storey was 102 years old in January 2007.
Deborah Abrey added (Jan 2007): "my grandmother, Gladys Elizabeth Capener, was the older sister of the best man Mr Ray Capener"
