My paternal widowed grandmother Rhoda Ross (born in Hammersmith, London) and James Birch, a widower, Wickford born and bred, on their wedding day in 1939 at St. Mary’s parish church Wickford. James’ nephew Leonard Birch is on the left of the picture next to James, I have no idea who the other people are. At the time of their marriage Rhoda and James were living at “Hope”, Bruce Grove, Wickford. I believe James was a labourer (he helped to build Runwell Hospital, so I’ve been told). I’m just wondering how Rhoda and James met, as she was born and lived in Hammersmith London until her marriage in Wickford.
