Who performed this marriage ceremony please?
« on: Monday 26 February 18 10:30 GMT (UK) »
Good morning all,

Please could I get some help working out the name of the person who performed a marriage ceremony. His/her signature is the one on the top left of this image https://drive.google.com/open?id=1YN677pkm3ciQpeqrzYBoz-_dzTRrX-el who going by the other signatures on the sheet wasn't the vicar of the church.

Thanks in advance,
Laura

I read it as E M Strong.

According to a post-1913 Crockford's Directory, a Eustace Mordaunt Strong was Curate of St Stephen's Walbrook, the church where the marriage took place, from 1909-1914.
Researching among others:
Bartle, Bilton, Campbell, Craven, Emmott, Harcourt, Hirst, Kellet(t), Kennedy,
Meaburn, Mennile/Meynell, Metcalf(e), Palliser, Robinson, Rutter, Shipley, Stow, Wilkinson

Also, because you might read your posts via e-mail there's this which Arthur found:
