Comment:
What a shame such a lovely building was demolished, we have searched for a photograph of the exterior without any luck. Our Mum Elsie was happily married to our dad John Lince for over 60 years sadly our dad passed away in May 2014. On seeing the photograph of the church where her parents married made Mum very happy, Mum was the youngest of nine siblings.
