On September 14th 1957 I married "Enid Howard" the daughter of "Percival Howard" at Hatherlow Church near Enid's home in Romiley, Cheshire.
There follows below a collection of images that relate to her family history.
Three of her fathers brothers emigrated to Australia - Albert 1920, Arthur 1927 and Stanley 1929. With the help of Enid's brother "Peter Howard" their pictures and detail are included in this web page.

Albert is missing from this picture at that time he was working in Manchester for the Corporation as a plumbing engineer..
