I just found out that my great-grandparents Emma Lockyer and John Morris were also married in the church – on Christmas Day 1887. There will be more about them later (with photos). I have a hymn book that belonged to John as a boy with a wonderful inscription in his own hand. Their daughter Ethel was my mum’s mother. John was born in 1861 and died on 18 January 1923. Emma died in 1930, aged 69.
