Ladies Bright Hour Group at Halmer End Methodist Church in 1922
This photograph was taken of the Ladies' Bright Hour Group at Halmer End Methodist Church in 1922.
Can any of our readers help us to identify the people in the photograph. We have some names for numbers 1 to 20 of the people in the photo but would appreciate help in finding the names of all the people up to 63.
The photograph has the caption 'Halmerend Methodist Chapel Ladies' Bright Hour group, 1922' and can still be seen in the Chapel. Photographs of men are quite common, but a group of women much less so. These are people who experienced the First World War and the Minnie Pit Disaster. Who were they? Does anyone else have an original version of the photo, perhaps with names?
An A3 size version of the photograph is available if it will help in the identification.
If you want a larger print or can help please contact David Rowley.
