Wedding of Bill Haben and Charlotte Mary Jarvis, in 1935, at St. Luke’s Church. In the background is Mrs Charlotte Jarvis and Mrs Mary Jarvis, mother and sister-in-law of the bride. This wedding took place on a Sunday - in those days people could get married on Sundays, because most people, if they had a job, worked on Saturday mornings and did not get paid holidays, so to take time off to get married would mean losing a day’s pay. From Mrs Haben
