Do you recognise this picture of Kingston vicar's funeral?
4:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
Brian Parsons of Kingston’s long-established funeral directors, Frederick W Paine, has hit a problem in his research into the history of the business, namely where and when was this postcard picture, above, was taken?
It is postally unused, so there is no frank to show a date. There is a caption in the top right corner saying: “Canon Wilson’s funeral. An impressive scene at Kingston.”
But Mr Parsons cannot identify the church in the background, and wonders if any of our readers might.
The names of some of the clergy in the procession are written on the back of the card.
They include Cyril Garbett who, said Brian, spent 20 years as a curate in Portsea before becoming Bishop of Southwark and later Archbishop of York.
Other clergy listed include HD Birley, CF Lucas, EE Partington, N Lang, HP Thompson, WH Bray and J Stanning.
"Any thoughts would be appreciated," said Brian. Email the email@example.com
