St Francis Church is now demolished, possibly in the 70s, it was an inset parish of St Mathews. St Francis Close is now on the site. It was a Home Office site for policemen, but it is now homes.

One vicar changed from Anglican to Catholic and went to be a guide in the Vatican.

The photos are taken outside the church at my wedding in 1958. My wife Sheila Cowland was the first baby Christened in the Church.

  • The sign – last picture was not outside the church but in the farm field at the bottom of Oaklands Avenue Hampermill Lane- the old concrete spur post supporting it can still be seen in the field I helped to put it up after it had been damaged at some point

  • If more people would put wedding photos on the site it would be a great resource for finding people you might recognise. I found myself scanning this photo for a familiar face. I will be submitting photos as soon as my book comes out as the publisher has all my old photos, (and probably wont use them!).
