The Church Choir were photographed in September 1945.
This photograph was taken after a special service in September 1945. The occasion was when the curate, Romilly Craze, left the parish to join the R.A.F. as a padre. He had looked after the parish during the years when the Vicar, Reg Bamber, was a P.O.W. The photograph includes Romilly’s father and another curate, Wilfred Reynolds, who was an old boy of the schools.
