Just found this and for what it’s worth would add my two pennyworth. Fifth from the left is H (rabbiter, hay tier and chimney sweep without peer). Immediately in front of H in the black hat is, I am almost certain, Gert Lumbis who was Harold’s wife. The lady standing on the groom’s right is the mother of the Lumbis men and was always known as M. She worked with my own Mum at Wrights when we went to Walkern school. If I was to hazard a guess (and I may be out on this one), I’d say the tall nan at the back and just behind the groom is John (Willy) Warner.

Deliberate mistake of the day, or senior moment maybe. Fifth from the left should read 5th from the right is H.

7th from right is ‘Auntie Dorrie’ (Dorrie Roach?)

Pauline, I think Dorrie’s surname was Roakes.

I have shown this to my Dad who was H’s nephew and he thinks this may be H’s wedding as well. To the left of the groom is Martha Lumbis. I will ask him about some of the others.

I think the 8th from the right is my Grandfather Jack Swain.

not sure this “H” wedding. Back row 5 in from right could be H.

Has been mentioned as possibly Harold Lumbis (aka ‘H’) is the groom.
